Goal setting and planning require confidence and control. If you’re not in charge, your plans will fade away in the background of your life. Taking a dream, a fantasy, turning it in to a structured project, and then proceeding to take consistent action on a timely basis until it becomes reality takes power, leadership, and focus.
The secret of success may not be in setting goals and planning – only… Strategies can make all the difference, giving goals and plans smart focus and leverage.
One of the most striking things about life is that we must make choices. Everything in life is limited. Time, resources, opportunity, and so on. You can’t be everything you have ever desired to be. You can’t do everything you’ve ever wanted to do. You need to pick and choose.
Your habits build your destiny. Whether you are successful or not, you reach your goals or you don’t, results and failure can all be tracked down to your habits. Habits are usually the tip of the iceberg that hides your personality traits, your behavior, and your tendencies below the waterline.
One of the most frequent questions we get about planning and goal setting is: how can I set goals and plan if I can’t predict the future, and life changes so much?
Life is not long enough for you to do everything you desire. You have about 15-17 hours a day to make the best of your time. What you choose to do daily shapes your future. To reach desirable outcomes, you must focus on specific paths that lead to winning results. You can’t do that without strategies.
