Always remember that a life without goals is akin to a journey without destination. The four ends (i.e. general goals) of human life are to develop virtue (dharma), acquire wealth (artha), fulfill desires (kama) and attain spiritual perfection (moksha). Therefore, acquiring diploma(s), becoming married, having children and supporting them through college, growing old, and dying are not really the goals; these are merely a few toll-booths on the highway of human life. You must establish specific goals to unfold your own inner potential.
