Summary: As we know, all conscious decisions involve an objective: to buy a car, to get an education, to plant soy beans. However, objectives do require a context and we usually provide one that is based on a desire, a need, or a problem. However, objectives or goals created within such a context commonly lead to unintended consequences when achieved. If we define those goals and objectives within a holistic context we are much more likely to avoid those unintended consequences.
