I believe a goal is something anyone should strive to have in their life. Sometimes it is not always clear what a goal could be or if it is necessary. I believe goals are deadly important.
A goal or objective is a desired result an animal or a system envisions, plans and commits to achieve—a personal or organizational desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Many people endeavor to reach goals within a finite time by setting deadlines.
I will give two examples. Some people might look at goals as my mother, a goal is something you can touch. The picture below is my mum on her way to jump onto our scooter for the first time. Her goal was to ride it once and learn how to use it. I drove her to an empty street in order to try driving it. We both fell when she tried to ride it and she never drove again. The point is that if she did not have a goal she would have never tried and she would never find out that she is worthless at driving:)
My other example is my own. I believe a goal is a vision that can be seen before doing it. Visualizing the goal can make you accomplish it. The list below are the goals I wrote in August for last year in College.
Below are my goals for this year.
