Recently a very senior executive from a Pharmaceutical company came to see me (let us call him Mr. A). He was earning well, had a nice house, drove a nice car, ….to the world he looked successful. However he had 2 major problems – his son (age about 28) and daughter (aged 25) were quite aimless in life.
He felt his life goals were very clear and he had achieved them, but his children were not fired enough. He had no clue what to do.
On probing I realised that his dreams too were a derivative of his childhood. He explained to me that his father (the children’s grandfather) would take him to meet relatives and cousins. Some of them had cars (in the 1960s and 1970s that was news!) and he had seen his father struggle to buy a house at age 49. So for Mr. A buying a house and driving a good car had become a very important GOAL. However if you rubbed a little you realised that this was just about being there – these are difficult to be called goals. You really need to stretch to call living as achieving goals :).
