“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.”Lao Tzu
Goal-setting is a skill of highly successful people. Some kids are really good at it. They map out their life events with certain outcomes in mind. Other kids just want to ‘go with the flow’ and goal-setting makes them nervous, unfulfilled and downright discouraged. Because the value of goal-setting is somewhat unclear, students must decide for themselves how they want to integrate it into their life activities. This will be a life-long challenge.
According to Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, you shouldn’t have fixed goals in life. You should be more concerned with the journey, not the destination.
Fixed goals and a clear destination are necessary ingredients for a successful life. Without them, we are lost and without purpose.
