Goals are good for people who tinker

I like to tinker so that I know how every little bit works. I also like the feeling of knowing I've achieved something. I'm sure it's already apparent to the reader that these tendencies sometimes come into conflict with each other.

My tinkering leads to more extensive knowledge. Undoubtedly, it has helped me many times in the past, and I continue to reap the benefits of my past fiddling.

Still, I hold myself to strict standards of productivity, and I become frustrated when I can't do enough in one day. Setting clear and reasonable goals for myself allows me to satisfy both my hankering to tamper and my drive to have something to show.
