I agree. We spend so much time working towards ONE big goal. Wondering if we’re ever going to get there; we’re wondering if one day the struggle will be over. I haven’t reached my goal yet but I know afterwards there will be something even bigger to go after. This will be my life story. Always wanting to thrive and go even farther. I wonder if I’ll ever be content with exactly where i am in life and what I have accomplished.
Another Gates essay. It’s funny to see how its been less than a year since I wrote this and some things have changed so much.
For as long as I can remember my goal has been being accepted to Harvard University. I’ve spent most of my school career working towards it. But, it’s just months away and I don’t know what comes next. I have spent so long working on one thing and now that it’s finally within my grasp, I feel lost.
I wonder if there is always this sense of loss when you meet a goal. It feels like everything I’ve worked towards is about to end and the thought of having to start again is terrifying. But, I’ve always set goals. This time, I just have a whole lot more to think about. The rest of my life is daunting and setting long term goals isn’t easy.
