Goals


You are either working on your dreams and Goals, or you're Searching for dreams and goals that you feel are worth perusing.
Both journeys are extremely important, but not more important then increasing your Knowledge. 'Learning Something New' should always be one of your main goals. You should have Milestones within your Milestones.

What Not to Do List

Most Goals are never a straight line, and priorities sometimes change. Be flexible and be ready to adapt. Break the goals down into more manageable chunks. If you can't do one thing then do another. Be the captain of your ship. Don't try to do it all, do as much as you can with the time you have. Try doing things that are the most important first.

Making a List - Check Lists
List your Biggest Goal First, which should be your reason for living, your passion.
List the steps to reach that goal in a series of increments. Develop Process
Now list your things to do. Small tasks that make up your responsibilities and your priorities.

Responsibilities

Priority
is things to do established in order of importance or urgency. The quality of being important and worthy of note. Preceding in time. Necessity. Essential: Absolutely necessary; vitally necessary. Basic and fundamental. Indispensable.

Batch Process
is to do all your similar tasks together. Multitasking
Batch Processing is the execution of a series of jobs in a program on a computer without manual intervention (non-interactive). Strictly speaking, it is a processing mode: the execution of a series of programs each on a set or "batch" of inputs, rather than a single input (which would instead be a custom job). However, this distinction has largely been lost, and the series of steps in a batch process are often called a "job" or "batch job".
Batch Production is a technique used in manufacturing, in which the object in question is created stage by stage over a series of workstations, and different batches of products are made. Together with job production (one-off production) and mass production (flow production or continuous production) it is one of the three main production methods.

"Remember, you may not always reach your goal, but you can still make a difference."  Pass the Baton

"When you feel like quitting, just remember why you started."  Memory

“If you don’t start somewhere…then I assure you, you’re going nowhere.” (via Star)

"People who have a greater sense of purpose and direction in life are more likely to live longer."

"A goal may not always be reached, but having something to aim at could make all the difference."

A goal is like having a beacon of light that keeps your mind fixed on a target and keeps you moving towards a particular Purpose. If you’re not moving towards something then that means you’re standing still and not going anywhere, and if your not going anywhere, that means you’re lost.  

It's not "What am I going to do now?" It's "What can I do next?"

It’s not just getting Inspiration, it’s what you do when you get inspired. There’s a big difference between having inspiration and having a very well thought out Plan. A plan that not only defines your Responsibilities, your Priorities and your abilities, but a plan that includes your increased awareness of the Causes and Effects that are created from your actions. There is a difference between doing Something that you want to do and doing Something that you feel the world needs you to do. Being an individual gives a human incredible freedoms, but it was never intended to isolate or disconnect a human from life itself.

Inspiration comes from knowing that you can Make a Difference.

Self-Efficacy is the extent or strength of one's belief in one's own ability to complete tasks and reach goals.

Determination is good to have. But when determination creates Tunnel Vision then it becomes a negative instead of a positive. It's like driving a car with no brakes. You can't stop to think when you need to.

Success is having a positive influence on other people’s lives. Everything else is just details.

Failure and Mistakes

Work is work, right? Volunteering is considered work. So work is not just about the Money, it’s more about the Value of your actions.  As far as I know we are the only human species in the universe. So it's just logical that I assure the survival of my species by avoiding negative actions that cause negative effects. 

Interpersonal intelligence

What if you could do anything or be anyone without limitations? Who would you be? What would you do?
Of course this is a silly question because it's not clear enough to answer correctly. Who would you be, under what conditions? What would you do, under what conditions? What information and knowledge do you have to explain your desired direction? Have you done any research? How much do you understand about your desired direction? What is your motivating now and where was it before? Introvert

Having a dream or a fantasy is different from having goals, responsibilities or priorities. If you believe that you have restrictions, or you believe there are certain things that are holding you back, then what you need are problem solving skills and an expert to help guide you through the difficulties. The only real limitation is your mind. If you lack the necessary information and knowledge in order to achieve a goal or dream then it's up to you to acquire it. So there seems to be one more limitation, which is having access to necessary information and knowledge, which brings you back to problem solving."

Even though life will never be the way you planned it, it's always better if you have some sort of plan. Even if you're not totally sure what those plans mean, at least for now it gives you a chance to find out what you might have done wrong, or what you might have done right. Plans are a documentation of your intentions, something that you can learn from, something to apply to new plans. A plan is either a step forward, or a step backward, So what's your next step?

Even if your plans change, or even if your goals were not reached, it's still better to have plans and goals then to have no plans or goals at all. A plan is not a set course of action that cannot be changed or modified. A goal is not a commitment that cannot be changed or modified. It's just better to have a plan and a goal, one that says "this is what I know now, and at this time, this looks like the correct action to take, even knowing that things change, and even knowing that I will learn more things along the way that might change the plans and change my goals." This is not saying to stop being spontaneous, but If you don't have nothing to reach for, or nothing to look forward too, then what's the point of living? Make a goal, have a plan, and still be spontaneous. Life is an incredible journey, and sometimes it's a good idea to know where you are headed, even if the destination changes.
