Having Trouble Figuring Out my Long Term Goals

I have been able to create an end goal, but still can’t figure out how to word what my long term goals are. I tried a few times to think about what to write, so that I can access my long term goals on this site as much as possible, but I just can’t get anything concrete. And this is a huge problem, because if I can’t figure out what my long term goals are, then I can’t figure out what my short term goals are, and if I don’t have any short term goals, then I won’t be able to reach my end goal. And I learned this somewhere, but is this even correct?

Do I really need to set long term goals and short term goals? I don’t know. I just think it is something anyone in business and entrepreneurship should be doing. To be honest, I am quite happy with the way my life is at the moment. I tell myself that I want more, but I am not sure if I really do. And I think that’s why I am not able to think of any short term goals.

In other words, I am currently enjoying the journey of getting to my end goal. It wasn’t long when I had no idea what my end goal was. My end goal didn’t even come to fruition until I was in my mid 20s, and I’m lucky enough to even have an end goal.  How am I going to achieve my end goal? Well, by creating businesses and making them successful. The first business I need to focus on is Flower Gift Korea. After Flower Gift Korea has grown to a size that I can hire people to run, then I’ll have to focus on another business.

Maybe I’m just content with the way things are right now. But is this a good thing or a bad thing? I don’t know. I truly believe that in order for someone to learn anything they must be interested in the topic. That is why I devoured countless hours of business and entrepreneur related content in my mid 20s, now that I am in my mid or early 30s, I do not have that passion and motivation I once did. Is it because I aged a 7-8 years? I don’t think age has anything to do with it because there are people younger and older than me that are hungry to learn more about entrepreneurship. Maybe it’s because I have found what I am looking for. Maybe it’s because I actually just enjoy the journey of getting to my end goal.

You see, I am not a very social guy. If you look at my activity on Facebook, Instagram, or whatever, it’s all business related. Before I was active on social media, I had an inner conflict. I was like, “I shouldn’t use social media for business purposes because then my friends or acquaintances will judge me. They’ll think of me as just some business guy who uses social platforms for his own gain.” And this almost stopped me from being social for my Flower business. But I chose to get over myself and did what I had to do to grow my business. And I think this will make for an interesting blog post topic one day. And the reason I mention this is that I enjoy spending time with my wife and don’t need to meet a whole lot of people. I probably meet one friend a month, maybe even just one friend every two months because I truly enjoy spending time with my wife and building my businesses.

That is why I am really enjoying the journey of getting to my end goal. Spending time with my wife and building my businesses are my two favourite things to do. So I just realized, why would I want to speed this part of my life up? Yeah, so writing this blog post has really helped me understand the true reason as to why I my long term goals and my short term goals are currently empty as of now. It’s not to say that they will be empty forever, but for now, I think it’s okay to keep them empty. But I might have a change of heart one day. Who knows.

I’m really glad that I decided to wake up a little early today to write this blog post. I was tempted to sleep in because I didn’t have to be up for at least another hour and half, but waking up earlier than I need to helps me build things like this blog and do productive things like exercise before starting the day.

Anyhow, what do you think? Do you think it is important to have goals? The funny thing is that I think it is very important to have goals, but at the moment, I don’t know. I want to have my long term and short term goals defined, but at the same time, I don’t just want to write down anything. Hopefully over time I’ll be able to come up with some more goals so I can have more things to work towards.
