On short-term goals

Daily, you wake up with a new sense of purpose and a new set of things to accomplish. Life presents you with new problems, challenges, and tasks that must be resolved by the day’s end. These are short-term goals, as they come and go in a matter of hours.

Where do these goals come from? In the last couple of days, I’ve noticed you struggle to find short-term goals to attack. You don’t know what the next 24 hours look like, and then you’re forced to find something to do not to waste your time. That’s good, especially if you’re defaulting to edifying activity such as reading, but not good if you fail to visualize the path you need to be on.
