yes, this issue of GOALS is something that i have been thinking about too... they are supposed to be our servants and yet they sometimes become the masters too.

It is undeniable that setting goals is a fine way to achieve things that we may not have come close to otherwise.

But it is a sad thing to be so filled with regret at MISSED goals that we totally overlook the marvels that we have discovered instead.

Like many things in this life, I think the secret lies in BALANCE. knowing when to abandon some goals, especially if we have outgrown them, and move on, is just as important as choosing them or even achieving them.

I think the main value of a goal is that it gets you out of bed and into the game, at the end of the day it doesn't matter which game it is or even how many points you've scored.

On the other hand, this may just be me rationalising my own lameness.
hah hah!
