I am reading a book from Abraham Maslow currently and I tripped on this sentence "He who belies his talent, the born painter who sell stockings instead, the intelligent

man who lives a stupid life, [...], all these people perceive in a deep way that they have done wrong to themselves and despise themselves for it.''

I the the goals article. A question I always consider is And when I achieve this, what will I experience? That is a temperature check for me. Thanks Alex.

Yes, exactly:)

it is a good way to „smell check“ how you feel about a goal! In a business context, I tend to ask „So what?“ to prove if it is a fad or something meaningful!
