It is easy to forget why we do the things we do. As a human, we fall into a routine not forget what our purpose is. You should always check yourself and situation to analyze if you possess an objective.
Once you know what your ultimate goal is, that is when you can become invested in what you are doing. Without a purpose, one cannot live up to their full potential nor move up from the current position. Having a goal gives people something they can look forward to and work. So make sure you have a goal in every little thing you do.
