Yeah that’s right – don’t set goals this year. I know setting goals is the proper thing to do this time of the year, but we were created to do more then just accomplish goals. When we are striving for a goal, oftentimes we are working out of obligation to that goal. Wouldn’t it be great if we could work out of passion and not obligation?
I recently listened to this podcast by Andy Stanley and he made a valuable point. Rather then setting goals it is more productive to identify problems. Once you’ve discovered the problems you feel compelled to solve, then identify the solutions and work toward those. With this approach, you will see more passion in the process of solving problems as opposed to simply accomplishing goals.
What problems do you feel compelled to solve this year?
