Accept Goals

Two interesting posts from the Godin blog – Boundaries and The thing about goals.

I think you can tell a lot about a person or an organization by looking at how they deal with boundaries…
…Consider the American car companies. When faced with real boundaries (like the diminishing supply of oil and the high price of gasoline) they ignored them. When faced with no boundaries (like the opportunity for rapid technological advancement) they hid…
…Sure, sometimes a boundary isn’t really a boundary. Telling them apart is a key pat of the process. But once you realize that there is (or isn’t) a boundary there, what now?

Having goals is a pain in the neck.
If you don’t have a goal (a corporate goal, a market share goal, a personal career goal, an athletic goal…) then you can just do your best…
…It seems to me, though, that the people who get things done, who lead, who grow and who make an impact… those people have goals.

Hrm, I wonder… I guess one just have to figure out what the boundary is (or isen’t) and go plowing through to reach your goal… Well, definatly worth the read anyway.
