Persistence, in and of itself, is usually a good thing, but what if you are chasing the wrong goals? This is where the idea of “enlightened persistence” comes in. Rather than chase goals that are not right for you, establish goals that make you happy and keep you fulfilled.
Some of the questions you can ask yourself are:
· Are you chasing futile goals which, even when achieved, will not invite happiness?
· When doing what is right for you, do you prevail even when the odds are stacked against you?
· When the task is to turn goals into concrete results do you do a little extra to create breakthroughs?
· Are you focused and consistent?
Persist until you succeed, however, exit if you’re chasing the wrong goals!
