I’ve never had a goal
Jason Fried

This resonates with me. A lot. I’ve always felt odd when people told me about their career plans. Their goals for a new year. For their next relationship. For whatever.

I never did that. I never felt like having a goal was important or would lead to having a better life. Things fell into their places anyways. They still do.

I am not disappointed by any outcome. I switched „careers“ thrice in my time at Jimdo, twice in the agency I worked at before. Every change felt natural, without forcing me into something because of a goal I wanted to reach.

It’s good to hear this from another person, especially if it’s Jason Fried

Goalsetters may call this unambitious. I’ll call it happy from now on.
