I'm Living Proof... it works!

I've heard it said a hundred times and I also teach it. "Write down your goals and you'll have better chances of hitting them". Last night my wife, Naomi, was cleaning out our home office desk and found a sheet of note book paper folded in a drawer titled "Greg's Personal Goals---April 2008". She called out to me, "Greg, you have to see this." As I glanced over the list I made over 3 years ago, everything I've learned and taught was confirmed.

Was I surprised to see that 99% of the goals I set were accomplished? Yes! Should I have been? No! When we set goals and then write them down, we tell our brain to get to work on figuring out how to make it happen. I recall the famous words of Napoleon Hill, "What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."

According to Peter VandenBos' article in the June 29, 2010 Issue of Inc. Magazine, "Your company's goals will only be effective if you have a clear vision of what you want to achieve--and how".

Now I'm not saying that we can just write them down, get lazy and expect that all our goals will be achieved. I am saying that if you'll write down your goals, both personally and for business, your accomplishments may surprise you.
