I was driving behind a car when the traffic light changed to orange. It was more than enough time for the car ahead to go through. But the man behind the wheel purposely slowed down to stop. Naturally I was annoyed.
As I looked at him I realized his goal was to stop to smoke. Mine was to get to work on time. Drove me crazy.
He was chilling. I was late. He appeared to have gone to the gym and was unhurriedly getting back. I needed to go to the gym but can’t (smirk). He may have a job that he can go when he pleases. Mine was to get there early or else…
But though I hated his actions, he was living his choice. I have to live with mine. We must stick with the choices we make. What’s your choice today?
Goals do differ. But we must be careful of goals that should be aligned such as on-the-job, or relationships. Some goals must go together as in organizations, joint partnerships, marriage and the like.
Check yourself.Are you on track with your goal? When things go awry, what do you do? Do share, we’d love to hear.
