I switch aspirations all the time, but I wouldn't call it a bad habit. It's just how goals work in this game.
My "problem" is that I cannot resist farming all those points, but when it comes to spending them, I restrict my sims to superficial things like asking myself if the new trait would be in-character for that sim or fits the setting. So as a result some sims sit on thousands of unspent points, but I still collec them "just in case".

I'm usually working on more than one aspiration at a time with each Sim, so I'm switching pretty frequently as I vary which one is what that Sim is working on at that very moment.
I try to stick to just 2 or 3 different ones which make the most sense for the Sim's personality and career/education goals at any given time though....just to save my own sanity.

I used to change aspirations back and forth to gather reward points, but it became very stressful and tedious. Nowadays I don't do it often anymore, I don't even need that much reward points.
I just give my Sims an aspiration and do it first and when it's ready I give them a new one but I don't necessarily try to complete it, it's just there. I don't need too many reward points, I don't want all my Sims to be super Sims anymore.

First thing I do with every new household is cycle through all the aspirations to gain as much points as I can. You can easily rack up points if they live in mansions, are married, have pets, friends, etc.
In general I stick to one but I tend to switch it up a bit to add the points with an activity and then put it back to the main one. Like I will switch to the fitness one if I go to the gym, the beach one if I go to Sulani, and then back again to my main one when I return to the lot.

Hey guys I've always wanted to know how other simmers play. Do you only do one aspiration at a time or do you change it all the time depending on what your doing? I have a really bad habit of swapping mine all the time so if I'm cooking I switch it and when I'm gardening I switch it, no matter what I'm doing lol, I used to think it was for satisfaction points but now I just think its satisfaction lmao.
How do you play?
