It depends on what kind of goal we’re talking about.
For “chore” type goals, I know that when I get them done, I get rid of the nagging pilot lights that drain my energy.
For big, hairy life goals, I remain vague. As in, my current career goal is to make my living…
Hmm. Curious. I am very clear that I find the most joy and the most success when I let go of the outcome. For me, it’s about the journey, not the destination. In my experience, pre- designing what the destination needs to be limits the possible outcomes.
