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?
