Certain personal goals are aspirational. Maybe you want to lose 15 pounds by the end of the year, or get into the habit of exercising at least twenty minutes each day.
Achieving such aspirational goals can be elusive. Both real life and our own flawed characters conspire to defeat us at every turn.
I was talking with some friends the other day, and the topic came around to those aspirational goals. In particular, we were discussing the moment when you finally admit to yourself that a particular aspirational goal will remain forever outside your reach.
We decided to give this phenomenon an apt name. So what do you call a former aspiration?
Our name for it: Exaspiration.
