Goals: Welcome to the dark side?
If you want to excel in your profession or at your craft...
If you want to be a better partner, friend, parent...
If you want to be fitter and stronger...
If you want to be happier…
You must set....
It’s taken as a given in our culture that goals are THE foundation of performance and wellbeing.
I'd say our culture is goal obsessed.
BUT is there a counterproductive or even destructive side to goal setting?
