One person decides on a certain outcome that’s needed. Plans and strategies are put into place that guide the person toward and to the desired result.
Both people are working toward a better future. They just go about it in different ways.
The first person sets goals. The second person focuses on growth. The goal-setter will grow along the way. The growth-gainer will accomplish goals, even if un-stated.
Both are needed and necessary. Different situations call for different strategies. The trick is to decide which one is right in each area of your life.
