Goal Agnst & Execution Angst

Most people’s career related angst can be broken down to two parts 1) Goal Angst: Am I working towards the right goals? 2) Execution Angst: Will I achieve my goals?

For example, Gandhi- may have had execution angst i.e. will he be able to help India get its independence in a peaceful & united way? But, there was no goal angst. He was pretty clear & passionate about his goals.

On the other hand, a junior consultant or banker may have both Goal Angst (Do I want to be a Partner at my Consulting Firm or a MD at my Investment Bank) & Execution Angst (Will I make Partner/MD at my firm?)
