Name Your Goals and Dreams

Committing your goals to paper 
increases the likelihood 
of your achieving them 
by one-thousand percent! 

~Brian Tracy

Kaf Grimm posted the quote above on Facebook.  Brian Tracy wrote Eat That Frog, which I wrote about here.  If you go to Brian's website there is a video at the top.  Brian has a video on his website at the top.  It starts automatically and of course if someone starts talking to you, you listen (Hi, Brian, you're a smart guy).  When I heard Brian use the phrase, "Path of least resistance" I thought, "Dad, is that you?"  

Here are a few goals I've written down:

Help both my sons develop skills needed 
for independent, meaningful lives

Lose weight and be more active

Develop a creative style that is distinctively mine

Purchase an antique Izannah Walker Doll

I've done this in the past and need to revisit it. These are not all the goals I have, just ones I will share. It's important to not write down OTHER people's goals.  ;-)  And once again, it's important to realize that reaching goals means making choices.  I am doing this and NOT this is part of the equation. You can't do everything and be everything.   But by writing down these goals I just raised my likelihood of achieving them by 1000%, according to Brian.  I want to see that study....

Good stuff, and just what I needed to hear today. I will write some goals today. (And I will NOT sit on my fanny all day reading fiction to block out the Shoulds yammering in my brain.)

That's funny, Jan, because I just finished reding The Kitchen House on my iPad. Excellent stirring book.
