Here is one more real life example relating to goal setting. Imagine you are building a house. One of the first things you will do before building is to draw a blueprint and floor plan. You wouldn’t even consider building a house without a plan, but what is more important to you, your house or your life?
Your life is far too important to just drift without a plan. Drifting without a plan often leads people into serious problems such as drug addiction, depression, anxiety, psychiatric hospitalization, and incarceration. Making a habit of regularly setting goals for yourself is essential to recovery. Living one day at a time is living only one day away from a relapse, and is an ill-advised long-term recovery plan.
