Should you even care to have goals? How should you go about living the most fulfilling life possible?
What’s the number one trick to start seeing the results you want? Is life limited in its span and if so how should you play ball with the resources (time) you’ve got available?
Goal setting does work but it’s not always the best strategy.
It was only 2 months ago that I returned from Dubai, where I was on a work mission with the best digital marketing agency in the Gulf. I can surely tell with wild confidence how I’ve never learnt and grown more professionally. Meeting with big clients always does the trick. So as I am sitting in my new flat in downtown Athens, Greece writing this, I can only begin to appreciate fully the Power of the Next Thing.
Constant change and regeneration is a very healthy, universal concept. Adding to this though, it’s about your inner motivation and drive. What makes you tick? That’s what defines you. That’s what makes you or breaks you.
Let’s take the example of a successful business venture, the wise entrepreneur in that case would make sure to have an exit strategy, when she or he sells the business to the highest bidder, then they go to the Next Thing- moving on with their lives in the most elegant of manners.
Be careful for a second, don’t equate it to failure. Failure is something to be embraced and
appreciated worshiped, and that’s cause it helps you see in which areas you need to push your limits and comfort zones. Your inner drive and motivation is being fed by failure (and, of course, massive eventual and incremental success here and there) but the most powerful thing is to always have shit you want to do. And yes, I am being informal here cause it’s crazy how many people give up on life too fucking soon. They get drawn into a shitty routine, which they wholeheartedly hate to pieces, and then wonder what’s wrong. Have things you aspire to do, come up with new ways to push your limits, the name of the game constant change.
Be sure to have many goals in your life. That’s going to be something separate from your bucket list. In doing this, you will discover that what’s more important it’s the journey, not so much the destination.
