I dont agree Mr.Seth Godin

There are times when you just dont agree with the gurus. that time came when i read Seths blog post on Goals. All of it re-teaches one thing – one must have goals to achieve excellence or achieve whatever. I cant but disagree on this. Recent events have only taught us that following a templatized way of looking or working in this world is fraught with risks. The more you structure the world, the more you are out of tune. becos the real world is chaotic. trying to fit the rules into our puny brains two dimensional way of thinking may be good in traffic systems. not everywhere else.

I have started to believe in Evolution of systems. Evolution in everything. Making a goal and breaking into milestones and following them may lead you somewhere tangible. But it will take away the beauty of life. The mystery of the future. This Goal oriented western concept needs to change. Change for the better. Else we will be successful in our goals. But Poor in life.

Sorry Seth. But I just dont agree.


One thought on “I dont agree Mr.Seth Godin

  1. Chandru,I think the point that he is making (and a lot of Gurus do too) is that "If you don't know where you want to go, nothing will get you there".A goal need not be anything more than a statement of what you want. Structure & organisation that you (rightly?) warn against is a totally different thing.Even evolution has a goal too "to maximise the occurrence in the gene pool" (from Selfish gene) but how each one achieves it is totally different.
