Goals can create dangerous expectations which lead to appalling behavior. If you don’t reach your goals, this can lead you into a perpetual state of anger, frustration and disappointment which ultimately leads you to feeling like a failure.
Most people accept that setting and achieving goals are a key driver of success. However, goal obsession can lead to exactly the opposite. If you are so obsessed with achieving one goal, you often overlook the bigger vision. You win the battle but lose the war.
