In life, people are very much goal oriented and objective oriented. Due to the different personalities that people carry, you will realize that people have very many different goals and objectives that they are chasing after in life and at times, they can become very consumed at getting to these goals and objectives. Attaining goals and objectives is important for success. In fact, the attainment or lack thereof of a goal or objective is very measurement of how successful the project was or how successful a person was at working towards a specific point that they had wanted to get to.
