It is important to choose goals that are worthy of our energy
If we only stop to look at the objectives that have been reached, however, we are ignoring an important part of a journey that we all need to make. Pursuing a seemingly small objective is exactly the same as pursuing a big one. The only real difference between the two are the consequences that the end goal will have, not just for us, but for everyone involved, even marginally.
