Goals...

I was just havin a chat with one of my friends and we just hit upon the word GOAL... For each one of us the word has got different meanin but the essence is same for all of us... the ultimate aim or desire... I would stick to " Aim" as the meanin as it sounds good ;)
We all have a goal in mind all the time which we achieve to reach by our efforts... the goal may be a short term or long term it may be a career oriented or social one... but yes they are always there. We sometimes find the path to them as difficult but the apex is always beautiful... Its just like soccer, where u have a goal with the path full of obstacles(opponents) and when u put the football in the goal ( thats ur aim in the match).. u feel the feelin of elation... u see urself on the top of the world at the moment and thats the moment of glory for you. Same is the case of life... we all have the goals set for ourself as I said before and when the crowing moment comes we are on the top of the world...


But then one thing comes to my mind, are material goals the real goal of one's life... I am at sea regarding this point as one should be aware of his ultimate aim in life... does playin in the muddy puddle of money or makin the best of ur life. What does it really matter? Keepin a Maybach or sleepin peacefully every night. Can all the money in the world but the smile for ur family, well thats hard to say. As for some money is everything. Theres no denyin the fact that yes money is always needed but some social or spiritual goal is also needed. As without the food for thought, how can we make sure that we are developin our thinkin process. Without some different sort of goal in life we are completely clueless about where are we headin, what is the inner aim of ourselves... and in the end we realise that its late... we then search for peace which is always within us n never searched for... so make a goal in life that caters to ur spritual as well as mental development apart from the day to day business and see the changes that occur in u as well has how they have impacted ur life.....

"Life as a human is a special gift of god, so dont waste it but give urself some food for thought."

IT is always gud to have a goal in ur life but i personally dont ever have some goal n then work towards it.. i work hard, thats true but never plan my exact course of action.. till date i've never ended up with something i've regretted or not wanted but somehow i cant see myself planning each n every detail of mah life.. take each day as it comes and enjoy life to its fullest :)
and ofcourse material goals r the last priority things.. money is important but not imp enough to make it everything in life..

Keshi said...

Great post...set some goals, achieve a few and live happily whether some goals were achieved or not :)

Keshi.

Inner aim - you are right it difficult to determine - Make your passion your profession

Chaitra said...

hey MANISH
really a nice post....
really in life u need to have some goals or aim (as u like it ;)) other than money....money is the last thing u can think of as ur goal....coz its so unfaithful...today its urs tomorrow it will b ur neighbours'....
so instead of runnin behind money its always gud to run behind the ppl u love....
take care...

chandni said...

hmmm..interesting perspective...

But somehow talks of goals disturb me...coz I always pay more attention to the journey...not particularly interested in getting anywhere...but living it up, either way!

Kishley said...

yeah actually u r right that everythng shd be kept in mind..but thats now wat i do, thats how i am.. i dont plan for my future beforehand.. and about where to put my effort.. well thats not really difficult.. i'm doing my ME so i have to complete my assignments n all :) so teachers decide it for us.. then when there was a time when i had to decide wether to go for postgrad or a job.. i dint make a goal at that time either.. i gave campus interviews, got selected.. gave test for ME, got good percentile in that too.. so i did not make any goal, yet was succesful cos watever i do , i do it with all my effort.. in the end i just decided to go for ME cos then my parents will not bug me to get married soon.. so actually thats how i make decisions, on the fly.. n luckily none has backfired :)

CyberMenace said...

If life was soccer and the goal post the ultimate aim, I would like to be Beckham .. wanna bend it like him !

illusion said...

i agree with chandni...its the journey which is more important than the goal...coz u learn during the journey... and learning stops when u reach the goal.

Manish said...

hi, guys. sorry for replyin late, was sort of busy these days.

@Chaitra
yes, very true... but sometimes u have to set free those whom u love... if they return they were urs else they were not...

@Chandni
True attention during journey is important.... but if u dont have any clue bout the destination... u never know u are always traversing the same path again n again...

@Doll (Kishley)
well sometimes lady luck favour u... but if u see in a different light... not gettin bugged for marriage was a goal... n the best path to it was ME... so dont u think unconciously... the goal is always there.. :)

@Cybermenace
What more can I say... just have a wonderful time all throughout :)

@Illusions
right, learnin is important... but unspecified learnin does not add onto u much... journey is important but without a aim... u let the destiny lead u.. n u not tryin to lead it... an there is no such thing as ultimate goal... they always keep on betterin.. or changin for good :)

God bless u all
Take Care
Keep smilin n visitin
