Have You Written Your '101 Goals' List Yet?
May 02, 2009
If you want to know what a goal is, it can be defined in just 5 words: “A dream with a deadline.” Goal setting is the single most important life skill that over 97 percent of people never learn how to do properly.
In Brian Tracy’s book Goals -- How to Get Everything You Want Faster Than You Ever Thought Possible, he claims that “Less than 3 percent of adults have clear written goals with plans on how to achieve them.” The key word is written. Those who earn most of the money, who are the best athletes and who are the top producers in any type of business have written goals.
Go to Google and you’ll find hundreds of resources on goal-setting and goal-achievement. Here are three that come highly recommended:
1) Book: Double Your Income Doing What You Love by Raymond Aaron
2) Pictures: Goals achievement images on Google
3) Website: Setting Goals 101 has lots of free resources
If you’ve read this far and you still are resisting writing down your goals or “dreams with deadlines,” then think about making your 101 Goals List. Jack Canfield writes about this on page 56 of The Success Principles.
What To Do Now: Click here to get the 101 Goals Generator, which helps your mind start thinking of 12 different categories of goal-setting and goal-achievement to focus on.
Categories include: Places to Visit, Skills to Learn, Things to Own, Financial Milestones and Risks to Take, just to name a few.
What’s most important is not to list your 101 as fast as possible, but to get started as fast as possible.
