I have never really been the one to learn the hard way, and it’s not because I refuse to take risks.
This is not about being bold, it’s about sheer blindness.
I wrote this awhile back…
What if I tell you that I don’t have any plans; that I only intend to work hard?
Will I still make it then?
I wrote this under the complete notion that if I work hard enough I would be able to attain anything– glory and success. I thought that it didn’t matter what I did as long as I put my heart and soul into it. After all, it is contemporary belief that hard work is the main catalyst to every success story. I was led to believe that what counts the most is your work ethic. And all of these are true.
But the answer is NO.
The lack of goal setting have only rendered me utterly depleted. It’s like running for miles on a treadmill- not going anywhere. All the time and effort I had invested were almost all for nothing. It seems as if the idea of indirection proved to be more fatal than the act of misdirection. And I have only myself to blame.
Make plans and determine your goals. It’s the only way to make hard work count.
