Day 16: About Goals

Goals are always just stages on our journey. Anyone who believes that reaching a goal is the pinnacle may be disappointed, as emptiness can replace happiness.

Goals are like milestones on our path toward the North Star we aim for. Achieving a goal should be celebrated, but at the same time, we should calmly set our sights on the next milestone without excessive emotional reactions.

Success is not a straight line but a chain of good decisions on a path full of crossroads.

But what is the North Star if it's not a goal? It marks a direction, similar to a compass guiding us when we come to a crossroads and are unsure which path to take.

The North Star is our moral orientation, our choice between good and evil, a collection of personal values.

As an example, your North Star could be:

  • Reliability
  • Integrity
  • Strong interpersonal relationships
  • Playfulness
  • Courage

What is your North Star? On what core values does your success build?

If you haven't found your North Star yet, it's most likely already within you. You just need to recognize it. This might sound challenging, but it's achievable.

Analyze your past decisions and actions. What led you to act the way you did? Your North Star is hidden within these decisions.
