Study: Natural Goals

I think ‘goals’ are pretty much already there in the form of things we think are cool enough to invest time in, with ‘coolness’ being the motivation. =)

Problems start when we start stacking MORE mental activity on top of this natural process via bad ideas from the positive psychology/self-help movement, i.e. S.M.A.R.T. goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timed).

Just play.  Where you need to go next will reveal itself in its own time.
