Setting B-HAG Goals – How they can drive : From the diary of a focussed FMS aspirant

As part of ‘Dream It, Do It’ motivational tour, I have been taking intense sessions for CAT aspirants across the country. After every session, many an inspired youngster do have long chats sharing their aims and fears, trials, tribulations and challenges, Seeking my insights, inputs and wisdom to succeed.

At the end of one such session this year, a young man sought to travel with me across the city saying that ‘I just want to be with you for some more time, to get greater clarity in life’. Just before he departed he shared his appreciation about the whole session and also the time he spent with me and how it is going to impact his journey. Also he pulled out his diary and shared a list of his goals that is motivating him and driving him…

I had a glance at it and felt really inspired by the B-HAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) set by the youngster. I promised myself and the youngster that I will share his goals in an article to inspire more youngsters…
