A goal is what turns a general sense of purpose into a specific achievement. To restore a strong sense of hope, power and progress to our lives – to really ‘get a life’ – we must first get back the reins of our destiny. But to do this demands that we get into the habit of goal setting. However, in order to do this, there are several subconscious objections to goal setting that must first be addressed – we must do a deconstruction. Otherwise, goal-setting remains a very nice theory, instead of an exciting way of life.
