GOYA and GOMA: Get Off Your Ass and Get Off My Ass
Well, here's my first post to this group. And it's gonna be a strange one!
Here's a question:
How does someone who has never set goals learn to set goals?
A little background is needed here, I think. I grew up in an environment where no goals were set and nothing was expected from any of us as children. On a subtle level, we knew that we were expected to fail no matter what we did, I think. But since my mother died when I was eight years old, I learned at that time that things can change in the blink of an eye. I learned to not set goals - why plan anything when it can all get wiped out in a second? ANY goals. Short term, or long term, no goals. And 44 years later, nothing has changed. I still have the mindset of the eight year old girl.
So I found this community intriguing. I guess I figure I can learn something here, maybe learn how to change my thinking. I've done things my way for 44 years; it doesn't work. LOL!!! Could be time to make some changes, huh?
