The hard thing about hitting your goals

Hitting a goal can be marvelous. It's often coupled with a sense of euphoria and delight. I know I revel in it.

But, just a little while after, something shifts and it gets kind of uncomfortable. At the time, it feels so wrong, after all, you're mostly euphoric.

And it all comes down to this:

When you set a goal, you imagine a perfect version of yourself achieving it... Yet the person who achieves it -- you -- is all too human (and, indeed, flawed).

It's not a problem with you or your goal -- its a problem with your imagination.
