삶의 목표

Click here for the podcast for this lesson EiK Podcast 4 (Life’s Goal)

This topic is your life’s goal. I’m referring to what you want to accomplish most in your life. For some people it may simply be being happy and starting a family. For others, it may be being rich and powerful. A specific goal, such as working at Samsung Electronics etc. is fine too. Your answer could also be someone that you hope to be like. For example, if your dream is to be a diplomat, you may want to be like Ban Ki-moon etc.
