Happy New Year! Setting goals.

Hi! I read an article about setting goals in the new year. This is what I got out of it. Enjoy! Wishing you all the best in '08!

BUILD A BETTER LIFE

(taken from an article by Michael Clouse)

Design your year with the end in mind. Write everything you have ever wanted in life in 3 minutes. Choose the ten most important. Rewrite each in a present-tense sentence as if it were already reality. Be specific.

What you think about you bring about! Take actual photographs of all you want. Put them all out where you will see them every day. Look at them for a full 15 minutes everyday. Focus on what you desire.

Read books, listen to audiotapes that will draw you closer to what you want. Apply the knowledge.

Plan your work and work your plan. The Quakers say, “When you pray, move your feet”...go at it with all-out massive action. Set up your calendar. Decide in writing before you go to bed each night what six things you will do the next day.

With every decision you make ask yourself, “Will what I am considering push me further from or pull me closer toward my goals?” Only do those things that will draw you in the direction you've decided to go. Decide to act as the person you want to be. This will elevate your decisions to greatness.

Thanks for the information, I have never set goals. I always feel lost and to be honest dumb about the fact I can do it. This must change and I really think that this can help. I am a homeschool mom and put my daughter first and my husband. I need to be first sometimes and I really feel this may help both in business and personal. Thank You.
