Goal setting is the first step of every success. As John points out in the video most people hardly set goals at all. And those who do set goals do so with wrong ones.
Most people including me seem to lack compelling 'why' to set big goals. One of the reasons is that we don't think we can achieve that big goals. "The will to do springs from the knowledge that you can do." James Allen pointed out that.
The examples in the video are very inspiring but it is not convincing enough for us to think that we can do whatever we aspire. The real problem for most of us is not having compelling 'why'. We are so comfortable to stay where we are right now most of the time.
As to goal setting, I was wondering if it applies to my hobbies, such as playing the piano. Is it better to have a clear goal for it too? Or, just do it without setting goal for fun? I wasn't sure at first but now I feel it is better to set some kind of goal. Otherwise, probably I would get bored doing it without direction. Achieving it or not, it seems better to have some goals for my hobbies too. Let me think of it.
