No Goals!

From zenhabits

Consider this common belief: “You’ll never get anywhere unless you know where you’re going.”

This seems so common sensical, and yet it’s obviously not true if you stop to think about it.

Conduct a simple experiment: go outside and walk in a random direction, and feel free to change directions randomly. After 20 minutes, an hour … you’ll be somewhere!

It’s just that you didn’t know you were going to end up there.

And there’s the rub: you have to open your mind to going places you never expected to go. If you live without goals, you’ll explore new territory.

You’ll learn some unexpected things. You’ll end up in surprising places.
