By 31 December 2021, I’ll have Rs. X in my bank account.
We’ve all set these kind of goals at some point of time in our lives, haven’t we?
When we set goals, we commit ourselves to reach a place, which we may or may not reach.
When we build systems or create habits, those routines become a part of our identity. These systems make you the person for whom it is possible to achieve those goals in the first place.
There’s nothing wrong in setting goals, except that they make us feel hollow when we get there; whereas habits fulfill us a bit more each day.
Setting habits is the easiest (and perhaps the quickest) way to reach your goals.
