Are you goal orientated or journey orientated
Through counseling and coaching, I often see the “extremes” and more “imbalanced” individuals.
I see some folks who are so goal orientated, achieve, achieve and achieve, but sometimes at the cost of the quality of their journeys or even their own happiness.
We see the other extreme too. There may be too much focus on the journey, and not being able to achieve and finish off the life goals on their list.
The key is to integrate the two.
The goal orientated folks have to focus more on the journey, and the journey orientated folks may have to get more clarity on their goals and move towards that.
It is a “tension” between the two.
The aim is to reach our goals, but not at the cost of the quality of our journeys perhaps.
