The other night I was watching a rerun of one of my faaaavorite TV Shows, the original NCIS. Toni A.K.A Dinozzo made a statement that made me think, he said "if you don't have a target, you could never miss". I thought about that for a minute, and you know what, I agree with him.
In life we are always told to set goals for ourselves. These goals could be short term, long term, financial, educational, etc. We set these goals and then proceed with the intent to execute them and bring them into fruition. Our goals become a target for success. Success at different levels in our lives. As we aim to reach these goals, we are constantly aiming at our target, with the desire to hit a bulls eye.
If we don't set goals, we don't have a target. Without a target we are aimless. At that point we have no sense of direction, no understanding of purpose and more importantly nothing to measure ourselves to. It sits in line with the statement we are all familiar with "if you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything".
Your thoughts, comments, and inputs are welcome.
Shared over a cup of tea,
