No, I won’t be writing about sports. It’s 2014 and that means it’s time to set new goals for the years. At least the business says so.
That seems to be a thing large companies do.
I never actually had to do this and found it somewhat tedious. And then there is this: It felt like giving lip service.
I do care to do the best job I can possibly do, but that mostly means to continue as I have. There is always room to improve and I know my weaknesses. But saying simply that and continue as I have does not seem to be what the business expects of me.
No, I have to have something more concrete, give it a title and a definition and then submit it for my manager. Also, we were told to make it something achievable.
How do I grow or learn by pursuing achievable goals? That’s too easy.
And here’s another thing, my actual goals, those truest to me, have nothing to do with any of this, especially my day job.
They are the real deal, the big, maybe unachievable, goals that I still won’t hesitate to tackle.
I suppose continuing to do my very best at my day job is an easily achievable thing to do. Writing every day is much harder.
So is pursuing those, not impossible, but improbable dreams I have.
