It’s tempting to avoid specifics when naming a goal.
And the most honest justification is “I’m afraid”.
Because once you put a stake in the ground, you either pass or you fail.
It’s easier to maintain a status quo than to risk not having reached the goal.
Perhaps that’s a sign you need to do lesser (choose better) instead of running in circles.
[And of course, feelings (joy, calm, curiosity) could be goals too.]
