Kicking a ball around on a field is nice.

It’s entertaining and it uses up energy.

But it’s ultimately unfulfilling.

How do you measure success or progress?

How do you know who’s winning?

However, when you put some posts at either end of the field, everything changes.

You have a goal.

You have something to aim for.

You have a purpose.

Whatever you choose to do with your life, you can do it aimlessly, confusing activity for progress.

Or you can put posts in, giving yourself meaningful and challenging goals to aim for.
