I understand that setting goals that make us wake up excited and obsessed to fulfill them is what Steve considers to be awesome...and I would agree, if something can make you feel alive then it is awesome.
I also think that in other peoples realities...something like getting a better job can be what is keeping them going and make them stretch themselves. Or, as in the examples I gave, can be something so simple, and yet can provide a person with an enriched life experience once it is attained...which is awesome in my oppinion.
Judging one thing as awesome and another as crappy is only Steve's OPPINION...it is for the person themselves to decide what is awesome or crappy as a goal...not him!
It isn't about pleasing him, though I can see steve may see himself as wanting to "raise the bar" so that people set themselves higher goals...it's still up to the individual to decide what is awesome for them or not, right.
That's the point I was trying to make...which went over a few heads I think.
