As I fall into the healthy habit of setting goals for the new year, I find myself curious of how society will have an affect.
Do societal influences predetermine my goals?
Will society alter my goals down the road?
Can society prevent me from achievement?
While my short list of subjective and attainable goals typically stay the same year after year, I’m now making it a habit to first reassure that these goals are not influenced. I’m also sure to focus equally on the goal while preventing any societal affects to the best of my ability.
As we set personal goals, we should also set goals for our society. Some that I have for society are to limit distractions, positively influence, and portray true representation.
