|Based on my book, Legacy: The Power Within, from the section called “Goal Setting” and its subsection “Seven Steps for Goal Setting, Problem Solving and Decision Making”
I don’t mind sharing the essence of the book here in this article, attaining goals and solving problems, in a nutshell so to speak. I know this is going to sound metaphysical, none the less, I hope it stirs the imagination.
Achieving a goal or solving a problem is possible for any of us, because of our strong desire or power of will, and that’s it. Though it is so much more complex than that, it is also that simple. Like bending your index finger for example; simple and at the same time a very complex system of events occur to make it happen. “Ask and ye shall receive.”
The seven steps formula, as it were, is an academic view of the same thing, attaining goals. They are formulated steps that help us to stay focused on our desire, that which we wish to attain or achieve, be it health, wealth, love, self-expression or solving a problem, thus we achieve.
It seems formulas are easier to except as feasible or reasonable. I suppose it is because they are sometimes more easily measurable, and so goal setting is recognized in academics as a science. Though in my opinion, since pre-biblical times, it always has been a science of the mind.
Setting worthwhile goals can be achieved. That’s why we call them worthwhile. This is also true about problem solving. When we believe it’s worth our time to spend our energy and focus, we achieve the desired end result. Energy and focus, driven by desire, are also a great part of the reason we achieve our goals.
I believe The Buddha tried to help people understand that its everyone’s right to avoid, reduce or eliminate suffering from their lives. Now there’s a worthwhile goal. Don’t you think?
