Given my past rantings on such things as happenstance, chaos theory, and the general unpredictability of life and the world, I would forgive you if you thought that I would be opposed to any sort of goal-setting or similar such planful activities. I actually believe goals can be quite helpful - but only if we stop thinking of them as Ikea instruction manuals.
For some of us, pursuing our dreams might be completely out of our comfort zone. We’re happy to work in jobs we feel are our “best option” at the time. The problem with this is that we become complacent and our motivation and passion slowly start to dwindle.
