Quote #143, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #143....

"Before you can score, you must first have a goal."
-Greek Proverb-

At first I found this to be basic and 'duhhh, everyone knows that'. However the more I thought about it, the better this proverb became.

Your object when you play golf is to put the ball in the hole, with as little strokes as possible. Playing hoops.. well your goal is to put the ball in the basket. Football.. to score and to not let the other team score. Hockey.. your goal is to make the puck GO IN the GOAL. Soccer, kick it in the GOAL.. Perhaps maybe that's why the cage that your trying to insert the object in is called the GOAL?

Ok, other parts of life.. when we drive, our goal is to get where we are going. When we are hungry, our goal is to put food in our bellies.When we go to high school/ college, our goal is to graduate.

Sooooo, in the big picture of life.. do you have GOALS and PLANS and DREAMS? If not, shouldn't you be working on developing them.. so you can ACHIEVE whatever it is that you desire? It's surprising how many people forget to have a basic GOAL GAMEPLAN for life. HMMM.

That's my view...... What Say You?
