Problem With Goals

What if you have only Goals, and no Systems?

  1. Win/Lose - Successful and unsuccessful people share the same goals.
  2. Momentary Change - Achieving a goal changes your life only for a moment.
  3. Either/ Or Conflict - Either you can achieve the goal and succeed, or you don't and are a failure. 
  4. Goal vs Long Term Progress - What do you do after achieving the goal, your motivation mostly ends right after it's achieved. And you'll slip back to your old routines.
