When i was growing up, i sometimes felt like half of all of the sacrament meeting speeches were lectures on how we needed to set goals. I grew to loathe them.
Goal-setting was a big deal when i was a full-time missionary, as well. (Well, at least it allegedly was—in reality the goals were pretty much set for us.)
Lectures from the pulpit on goal-setting are thankfully rarer in my life now, but they still occur. Therefore, i propose that anyone who delivers a sacrament meeting address on the importance of setting goals should have yesterday’s Pearls Before Swine tattooed on their forehead:
p.s. Pearls Before Swine is a really amazing comic strip—if you haven’t ever seen it before you should definitely look it up.
