But, one needs to be careful about the goals one chooses, as a poorly chosen goal will pretty well guarantee a lack of success. An obvious example of this is a goal that is too grand or far-reaching to be readily attained. For example, creating a full-blown, AAA-style video game is not a good choice of goals, if one has never done any game design or programming work before. Another classic example of a bad goal is winning the lottery. Lotteries aren't skill-based; they are pure random chance. Thus, they are not something that one can improve with practice.
Of course, there are other types of goals out there. Like the kind you score when you kick a ball into a net. But whatever one's goal may be, it certainly feels great to attain it! Just ask the ponies below:
