Manic Monday

There’s a guy out there somewhere (I can’t remember his name) who wrote a book titled Don’t Set Goals. I never read the book or read about the book. The most I remember is a spot his publisher ran on the radio. As I recall, the basic idea was to achieve success through a goal-free life.

I can hear this guy’s voice on the radio. He sounded so earnest. So sure of himself. So successful. On this manic Monday, I find myself thinking this guy was so…full of shit.

Maybe he meant: Don’t depend on your ideal world to become reality. Maybe he meant: You can’t count on a goal to make you successful. But…don’t set goals?

I’ll stop there. Best not to criticize that which I don’t understand.

Better yet, a plug for a better post. Head to the Edge of America to read about the search for home through houses and the discovery of Home through something else. I found it inspirational in an odd way.
