“Our business in life is not to get ahead of others but to get ahead of ourselves.” — E. Joseph Cossman
Setting goals is one of the ways we go about that business. But it isn’t the only way we can make progress.
When the future feels uncertain, and goals feel restrictive or overwhelming, themes can offer a better way forward.
A theme can focus on any area of your life that you want to improve. It acts like a flashlight in the darkness of uncertainty. It can give you direction when you feel lost, illuminating paths of purpose and helping you move forward.
Without the judgment and restrictions of goals, themes can be a more flexible way to work toward meaningful change. And that’s why they can be ideal in unpredictable times.1
