Updated: Sep 6, 2022

  1. To give direction to life

  2. To make sure we are the ones choosing the direction of our life -- not others, not fate, not the media, etc.

  3. To motivate

  4. To make sure we get what we want from life

  5. To save time

  6. To reduce stress

  7. To give a sense of accomplishment

While it can be fun to live without direction in the short term, in the long-term human beings are wired to need a purpose and direction. Goals give a sense of direction and purpose to life.
