More No Goals

Living in the now from zenhabits

You don’t need goals to tell you what to do.  You’re excited about doing it already — you just need to focus, and get to it.

Goals keep you focused on something in the future, instead of being present and enjoying what you’re doing right now. Goals keep you fixed on one path, which might not be the best path in a week or a month or a year. They keep you fixated on one thing, rather than being open to new opportunities, being flexible as the landscape changes, being free to pursue something you’re newly passionate about rather than sticking to something you’re tired of.

Being liberated from goals means you will always be excited about what you’re doing. And yes, you’ll accomplish things.

You’ll get somewhere great — you just might not have known you’d ever end up there when you started.

Get excited, and do stuff.
