Goalless Living?

This is a topic that's been on my mind for some time now. Embedded in this post is one of the most inspiring videos I have ever seen. It is a video of one of the speakers at NewThink theatre, a concept coined by Maher Qaddoura (the father of late Hikmat Qaddoura who was killed in a car accident). The idea is to get speakers from various domains to inspire to create change, to result in actions rather than talk. Their first event was a huge success and the second event was recently confirmed to take place in May. I will definitely go.

Back to the subject. The video below is of Sanaa' Abdo, a woman who underwent tremendous hardship, from being born with a handicap to having a stroke in her twenties. Yet she believes in being happy, she refused to give up and feel sorry for herself and as a result she is talking about how we, as a society, are negative and tend to bring people down. I strongly urge you to watch the video.

In the end, she speaks about the importance of living life with a goal. She says how she wakes up every single day with a goal, and how no one should live their life without a goal in mind.

That got me thinking.

Do you have a goal? I don't mean ambition, as in becoming successful, earning a good salary, being a good person. We all have ambitions. I mean a goal. An analytical study of how you want to live your life and what you have to accomplish in the coming week, month and years.

I don't. I never sat down and wrote I want to have accomplished A, B and C in 5 years. Is it wrong to live day by day?

This is a comment I found on some site about the subject: "In the speech by Steve Jobs, he talks about trusting your gut and doing what you love and how that you have to "trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future". It would be hard to say that Jobs has pursued goalless living given what he has achieved. However, he does seem to have based his life and career decisions on gut instinct rather than analytical planning."

Do you have a goal?

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
