A goal makes the mundane stuff more bearable and exciting!
It is so essential to have a goal. Oh yeah, have a goal! This sounds just crap. Having a goal, one might feel is out of the question. Just let me get through the school year, or get through these two weeks until I have a paycheck in hand or just waiting for friday.
Our days for the most part are so filled with mundane tasks. We are on autopilot, going from one thing to another like a zombie. It is an accomplishment just to survive the 24 hours that we barely get time to reflect on anything. A goal makes the mundane stuff more bearable and exciting.
A goal can be very simple and must be something close to your heart. A few simple questions can help you frame your goal and give meaning to all your mundane tasks, making your days feel lighter. Where have I come from, where is my home, where and how do I want to live and where am I going? Answering these questions can help better frame a goal. It just gives more meaning to all the mundane tasks.
