Goals – Write Them Down!
As you read about setting goals, you may be tempted to store yours in your head …
But, I know from experience, that’s a recipe for giving up before you achieve success.
Instead, boost your chances of reaching your goals by writing them down.
Almost every expert agrees. As Mark Ford quotes in his book, The Pledge (written under his former pen name, Michael Masterson), a recent DayTimer.com study found that, “American workers with the highest incomes and most success in the workplace are those who have written goals.”
He goes on to say that these same people are also in the habit of writing daily task lists.
Plus, many of them prioritize their lists to help them achieve their goals.
