Why are goals important?

In the past, I have written about goal setting but today I want to write about why goal setting is important.

An easy way to understand it is through examples.

Kids will shoot baskets all day long. All they need is a ball and a basket. Take away the basket and in a very short time, they will lose interest.
Give a person a gun and a target and they will be occupied for hours. Take away the target and the gun isn’t fun anymore (I’m not advocating playing with guns, it’s just an example.
People will pick up a musical instrument and start off trying to play a song. Remove the song and the instrument just makes annoying noise and loses their interest

Without something to shoot for, strive for or work towards, people lose interest quickly. Give them a goal and great things can happen.

Have a great day (and a goal)
