Give someone three hours to complete specific ‘all-day’ tasks and surprisingly they’ll come in at just three hours saying they’re done. But give them all day to do as they please and they’ll sit around dilly-dallying until the sun goes down.
In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.
We as humans are flawed like that. Heck, might as well call us chickens. Because without goals all we do is run around with our heads cut off.
And we’ll run around aimlessly again tomorrow… if we don’t set goals (defined goals).
