Gotta have your goals. Learning goals, career goals, exercise goals… a goal for every occasion! While goals are a great way of finding direction in life, it’s easy to end up with a bunch of them that don’t make much sense.
Do you really want to learn more data analysis techniques? Or are you just trying to please your boss? Is it really important to you that you go to the gym every day? Or do you just feel like you should? Your goals are your goals. When they come from a place that relies on the opinions of others, they’re not your goals anymore.
