It takes a day or two to notice why I did something, or weeks/months for bigger ones.

Most of the time, I cannot tell exactly what I am trying to accomplish, yet I manage to do everything like I knew exactly what I am trying to accomplish.

It is like my targets are in my subconscious, and their actualization in my conscious.

I realize that I reach my targets that way, but it makes me so uncomfortable not knowing what I am doing, thus am I acting on a target or a problem.

Sometimes you feel something and not realized why you feel it until you sit back and ponder about it. In your case, you need to take note of what you feel when you feel it as soon as it hits you in the head. Unlike logical reasoning, to make sense of what you feel is a bit tricky because your source of motivation comes from the heart or your values; etc.

I could be wrong but I think what you might be talking about is when your soul has an agenda that your conscious is not aware of.

dominant function [Se] - extraverted sensing
inferior function [Ni] - introverted intuition

It makes sense what you describe @AW10

I would like to propose a trade with you, as my dominant function is one of Intuition [Ne] and my inferior function one of Sensing [Si]. Thus, my troubles are inverted to what you describe; I try to reach goals that I can envision clearly, but have no clue what steps to undertake to get there. At least, I can't put myself to consciously take the necessary steps to reach the envisioned endgoal.

Super interesting in how you describe the discomfort that you feel and when and where they occur. Again, inverted to my situation. Knowing where I want to be, but feeling insecure about the steps (discomfort) I have to possibly overcome to get there. I want to skip the technicalities and the 'now' in favour of the endresult. This leads to massive overthinking on minor tasks and minor tasks.

So, what happens to you when you try to force yourself to see the endgoals before acting on things you want to act on? I think this is the real question here for you. I'm eager to know what you make of it!

3..2..1.... GO!

I will never try to force myself to see the endgoal. Trust me when I say that it gives me a major headache.

However, I would occasionally sit down and ponder about the adventures / experiences I've had along the way, and they are certainly interconnected to one purpose.

For some people it's : END = 1 -> 2 -> 3

For others, it's : 3 -> 2 -> 1 = END

Depending on how you think, it's either forward or backward.

I experience something similar to you. I can visualize my goals. Like say, if i want to redecorate my room, I can visualize my paintings and my artsy things in there. but then, I see the mess and then I look out the window and see... a bird... And... the plans have gotten derailed for a long time. Not much overthinking, but figuring out the steps... not happening!!!
