I like this approach. I plan to read this book and then send it to my company's management team. They insist that all employees set yearly career goals in the SMART tradition. I would like to see some aspiration added to the formula they use.
Thanks for giving me hope!

Goal-Free Living is When I am at my Best

I am really enjoying this book. What I realized is I grew up in a strong goal oriented family and culture. This approach to life has never fit me - I have created my life not by plan but by intuition, heart and mind. Unfortunately I've beaten myself up for years for not having goals. But if I had goals I would've missed many opportunities such as living in Australia, having a fourth child later in life and discovering yoga as a passion that I am adding to my business coaching. Not being goal oriented has meant I haven't crossed the biggies off of a life list - such as getting bigger promotions, getting a graduate degree, or making x amount of money. It has meant that when my eight year old daughter had a brain tumor this spring - I didn't focus on the goals or outcomes - I focused on what is - and that was her and her love. Being in the hospital loving her and helping her through the experience without expectations or goals made the whole experience relaxed and positive.
