Goals, Smoals?

The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goals, the tragedy lies in not having goals to reach.
-Benjamin Mays (1960), Former President of Moorhouse College

People disagree on which is the better way to live; a life filled with goals, lists and missions or goal-free . Life may be enjoyable either way, depending on how you function best. With or without clear goals, our activities must have meaning which is felt or achieved in relation to people we identify with and/or love. Lists can help; so can goals. Both are useful tools to find meaning, but certainly not meaning itself.
