Here in Washington DC (where I am, for the moment), the phrase “moving the goalposts” is often used to demonize the other side of the political aisle when the other doesn’t get its way. It’s childish and silly. And mostly just wastes our taxpayer dollars. (see: George Carlin)
But there’s value in the concept, when stood on its head:
What if we moved our own goalposts?
What if we placed more value on what we have, versus what we don’t?
What if we set aside work on the weekends as a rule, rather than as a luxury?
What if we put our hearts, souls and sweat into the things that sustain and remain with us, rather than into things that are fleeting?
Everyone else moves their goalposts. Why shouldn’t you?
