You know, you can’t just wake up to do something unless you feel a motivation towards the same. You ought to feel a necessity towards something in order to pursue it – and that’s what goals are about; a goal gives you something to aim at and work towards.
A goal gives you an opportunity to learn about yourself and increase your ability to get things done. Ultimately, a worthy goal will uphold a self image, bring the joy of accomplishment/actualization and fulfill a higher purpose.
Take a moment and think: why do you really care about the goals you are obsessed with?

The environmental requirements for cultivating potatoes is different from the environmental requirements for cultivating apples. They need different temperatures, different moisture and different soil types. A wise farmer ensures that he
