Rudder and oars analogy for goals

  • Imagine a boat
  • Your goals are the rudder
  • They set the direction of where you want to go
  • Following one goal will move you forward but switching between multiple goals will cause you to swim in circles.
  • Your systems are the oars
  • You need a system to move you towards your goal
  • If you’re a writer your goal might be to write a book. Your system is writing one page a day.
