VOL 22.02: GOAL
Quality Tools/Concepts   »  
(September 19, 2020)

Every endeavor we undertake starts with a goal. A goal starts as an idea, which morphs into a desire, which becomes a goal. Ideas are vague, desires are inspiring, and a goal is actionable inspiration.

A goal is not a plan. A goal should not be overly specific. And a goal should be deeper than a simple metric.

But a goal is a constraint, and an important one. Imagine that, an inspiring constraint.

Most important, goals let us know what we should be doing. Without them, we simply don’t know the appropriate way to act.

Goals focus us in a direction, gives us a general end-state, and allow maximum flexibility for getting there.

I will run the Mumbai Marathon next year.
