Active, rational changes in our lives cannot be accomplished without a clear idea of what we want our life to be.
While this understanding of what we want comes from soul searching, day dreaming and finding our passion, none of these activities creates a road map for us to actually make change happen. To create this road map we need to set goals.
Our goals should not be created in a vacuum. Looking at the road map analogy each road by itself is not that important. What makes a road useful is how it connects to other roads. Goals work the same way building, crisscrossing and strengthening each other.
