Seminars and literature on self-management, communication and leadership quality are oriented towards concepts such as goal orientation, goal definition and the achievement of goals. And here you read: Let go of goals!?!
You are right, of course. It is not about living a life without orientation and not setting goals in the professional and private sphere. It is about the inner attitude towards these goals.
Serenity instead of stupor
Of course, one is a little distracted by the rigid fixation on his focus, if one leaves his goal a bit out of sight. That's right, yes, but what exactly is distracted?
A part of our consciousness and our body is further focused on the goal and will eventually reach it. The distraction is thus not a general carelessness generated, but a too strong focus on the result will be taken away.
Allow operations instead of forcing them
It seems that the finest possible coordination of the body movements can work if we allow the processes, rather than force them with willpower.
I could also tell you something from the field of speech education, making music with groups and singing lessons.
Like the little prince
It is not about losing the goal of an action, speech, or presentation, but the exact opposite. Antoine de Saint Exupéry was said to have once said:
"If you want to build a ship, do not drum up men to raise wood, prepare tools, assign tasks, and divide work, but teach men's longing for the vast endless sea."
The longing in the heart
This building of a ship, which opens up the possibility to explore the world's sea, stands for an inner attitude. At the moment you have a great goal radiant in mind that you touch emotionally, look forward to it.
They look forward to the experience (the special moment of spectacular sunrises, the peace and expanse of the sea). They are far from materialists or timetables in your vision.
The emotional anchorage counts
If the vision is great among all involved people and has a strong emotional anchorage, it will be easy to create the appropriate ship. The material things of logistics, material procurement and cetera follow the great goal without much effort.
You look to stay with the picture, not in the dock where your ship is built, but with a wide view to the horizon and even beyond.
Do not lose sight of the goal
Building your ship now will work well, it will certainly better meet the demands of the ocean than you and yours Team would not have that big vision.
This is the first step in releasing goals, which is because you have a great emotionally moving goal in mind, which the small practical intermediate goals almost playfully follow by themselves.
