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 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?
It looks like just a silly new trend, but if you think about it, suddenly getting an email you wrote yourself 5 years ago can have a powerful impact on you – if you do it wisely, of course! Writing silly or superficial stuff can be fun, but using it as a life strategy to keep you on course can be smart.
