Goals are presented to us regularly from our first school on-wards. You have target grades in education alongside any goals you are encouraged to set on extra-curricular activities. Sometimes goals are even set on your behalf; during parents evening, when beginning secondary education. This then evolves into goals set in the workplace, the annual performance review that requires you to reflect and satisfy criteria, competencies and expectations. All of these are a goals imposed on us at periods dictated by people that typically are not us.
