Don't Just Pick Any Goal

From the desk of Doctor B. D. Septive 
            A goal has to be something that is important to you.  If it’s important that you have attention or fame to fan your ever expanding ego, go for it.  Just don’t come crying to me when your empty life is a shallow collection of drama classes.  If it’s important that you get away with things you shouldn’t be doing in the first place, every day will be its own challenge.  Of course, if you do get caught good luck at your new job in the prison laundry.  If it’s important for you to endure increasingly painful forms of punishment, call your insurance company.   
            Your goals depend upon you.  Who are you, what do you want, and why do you keep ringing my doorbell and running away?  Get back here.  I didn’t say it would be easy.  If it’s important it’s never easy.  But so what?  It wasn’t easy when you rode a bike for the first time.  It wasn’t easy when you switched tires with your neighbor when he was asleep.  It wasn’t easy to convince Mable she should let you wear her prosthesis. 
            If it’s important you can do it; you must do it.  So pay for your fried baloney sandwich and make your way out of the bus station.  Only you can discover what is important to you because only you know the you that’s really you.
