I’m a very goal-oriented person. I have personal goals, career goals, educational goals, etc, etc. But do I have a hardcore plan on when I want to complete those goals? Nope.
I don’t believe plans and goals are synonyms for each other, nor do I think they are interchangeable words. I slightly cringe when someone asks me what my five-year plan is. I mean honestly I’m just trying to solidify my happy hour and brunch plans for the week. I can’t tell you where I’m going to live, what job I will have or if a ring will be on my finger in a few years.
