Goal Setting |
1. Life is a striving.
Death is the absence of striving.
2. Life has a form, a personality.
Death is chaotic, faceless.
3. A form needs a specific purpose, a goal.
A lack of purpose makes striving impossible and leads chaos or death.
4. Neither a wall can be painted, nor can a city be built without a goal.
5. The lower a goal is, the sooner it is reached and the sooner striving comes to an end.
The less developed a life form is, the lower goals it strives for.
6. The higher a goal is, the longer it takes to reach and the longer the striving lasts.
The more developed a life form is, the higher goals it can strive for.
7. Once a goal is reached a form has two options. It can either find a new goal and
resume it’s striving, or it can stop all striving.
8. An undeveloped life form can not set or reach a high goal. It should start with low goals and gradually raise them as it grows.
9. A more developed life form can not be satisfied with low goals. It can not truly strive for something easily attainable.
10. A life form can strive for a goal with or without conscious knowledge of the goal.
1. A developed life form defines it’s own goals.
An undeveloped life form strives for goals, which it does not set itself.
2. In most cases outside factors, including more developed life forms, define goals for undeveloped forms.
A developed life form considers outside factors, including other life forms, when defining it’s own goals.
3. A life form has to believe in a goal, if it is a true goal. If a form is deceived into striving for a goal, or has to be convinced, it will not be a true striving. The form will eventually lose interest and stop striving.
4. When a life form comes to a point, where new goals, which it can truly believe in, can not be defined, all striving stops.
5. When a goal, which a life form can believe in, is found, striving resumes.
6. Striving for goals, defined by outside factors leads to dependence.
Striving for goals defined by a life form itself leads to independence and freedom.
7. A life form unable to set attainable goals for itself can strive for goals defined by outside factors. In this way it can learn to define it’s own goals. A child learns from it’s parents, then later in life becomes independent.
1. A goal does not always have to be achieved to be effective in producing srtiving. If it produces true striving, it produces life. Perhaps it is the true goal of any goal.
2. Once a goal is achieved a new goal has to be found, or all striving stops.
3. A goal can be changed or modified at any time to fit the circumstances and needs of a striving form.
4. A goal, which is not changed or modified regardless of the circumstances and true needs of a striving form, will eventually stop producing striving. Forms will stop believing in such a goal. This will result in the death of the goal.
5. If a goal is changed or modified at the appropriate times to fit the circumstances and needs of striving forms, it will continue to hold a source of life.
6. An achieved goal automatically becomes a dead goal. It can no longer produce striving.
1. Imagination is the power needed to define life producing goals.
2. Imagination is the ability to define totally new goals and ways of striving for them as the need arises. It is the ability to see new opportunities to create new goals accordingly.
3. A life form can not define new goals, which it can believe in, when there is a lack of imagination.
4. Imagination allows a life form to define it’s own goals and as a result leads to independence and freedom. It gives strength to a life form.
5. The more developed a life form is, the more it depends on it’s own imagination. The most developed forms use their imagination to define life producing goals for less developed forms.
1. If imagination is to have real power in the real world, it has to include the surrounding environment. It also needs to consider any changes in the environment. In order to cross the ocean in a sailboat, one has to keep track of the direction of the wind and waves as well as the compass needle and make the appropriate changes.
2. Without attention to the current reality imagination can not produce real life producing striving in the real world.
