Direction & Purpose “People who regularly write down their goals earn nine times as much over their lifetimes as people who don’t, and yet 80% of Americans say they don’t have goals. Sixteen percent have goals but don’t write them down. Less than four percent write down their goals, and fewer than one percent actually review them on an ongoing basis. Can you guess which one percent? How do you know where you are going?

Exercise Wrap Up Rule #1 To make sure your goal is motivating, write down why it's valuable and important to you. Ask yourself, "If I were to share my goal with others, what would I tell them to convince them it was a worthwhile goal?" You can use this motivating value statement to help you if you start to doubt yourself or lose confidence in your ability to actually make the goal happen. Rule #2 Rule #3 Rule #4 Rule #5 Specific
Time Bound The physical act of writing down a goal makes it real and tangible. You have no excuse for forgetting about it. As you write, use the word "will" instead of "would like to" or "might". This step is often missed in the process of goal setting. You get so focused on the outcome that you forget to plan all of the steps that are needed along the way. By writing out the individual steps, and then crossing each one off as you complete it, you'll realize that you are making progress towards your ultimate goal. Wanting something is not enough
you have to DO something Stick with it
