Your personal goals in the light of distractions, irrelevancies, and obstacles. Why integration is the key to personal effectiveness, achievement, and stress reduction

Ideas are precious and constitute the basis of civilization. Without the concepts of free trade, freedom of speech, and human rights, our standard of living would rapidly fall to medieval levels. Personal goals shape a sustained vision that transforms our talents into valuable products of services.

Your personal goals in the light of distractions, irrelevancies, and obstacles


Closed doors reflect fear of change. Rational objectives will take you forward, but it is essential that those are compatible. Inconsistent principles rob each other's force and deplete each other's resources. Keep you door open to new concepts and ideas, but make sure that those are logically integrated.

When you discover that some of your goals are wrong, you should discard them. On the other hand, if your ambitions are annoying but consistent, keep them, since they might lead you to a breakthrough improvement.

Why integration is the key to personal effectiveness, achievement, and stress reduction


Integrated goals will take you places, but inconsistent ambitions will only wear you down, making you stressed, anxious, and depressed. Pursuing compatible goals increases personal effectiveness and enhances creativity. 

Consistent ideals also improve man's reasoning capacity. Modern life requires instantaneous choices. Individuals who possess well-integrated goals can deal with complexity in the most effective manner.

Rational men ensure the consistency of their actions by defining clear objectives for the remaining decades of their life. Effective living requires that our choices, minor or fundamental, are aligned with our overriding goals. Individuals who follow this principle tend to become an outstanding success.
