Hi all, You can never go wrong with seeing Grant Schneider blog.  Make it a great Holiday

If you are doing fine you might not be interested but sometimes we look for things to improve and are disappointed when we see no change. It is almost as if we are waiting for something to happen. But there are some who know that if they want something to happen, they must be the ones to make it happen.

Those who are waiting for it to happen have a much different approach to going on vacation. Many of us spend a considerable amount of time and effort planning a vacation. We will figure out exactly where we want to go and what type of things we want to do while we are there. We’ll make reservations, schedule appointments, and prepare a list of all the appropriate things we need to pack. This planning is usually very detailed, somewhat tedious, and time consuming. But because we want the trip to be hassle free we will plan these occasional trips right down to the very last detail.

When you think about your life, your daily journey, how well do you plan and organize it? Your life’s journey is the MOST important trip you will ever take. Why is it that we spend so little time planning our lives? Many of us have little or no idea where we are going!

If you think that setting goals does not matter stop for a minute and consider why we should set goals. For example:

If you don’t set goals, someone else might set them for you and you won’t like the outcome.

All things must be mentally accomplished before they can be physically accomplished. What you think about you become.

It is easier, cheaper, and faster than trial and error … Would you build a house without a set of blueprints?

It keeps you on target. You could build a house without following plans, but you will possibly make a mistake in framing or foundation the will affect the structure of the entire house.

There a personal rewards and benefits to setting goals and achieving them. Some include:

Goals help you discover your own personal uniqueness.

Goals help you overcome negative conditioning.

Goals help you to act.

Goals add to the excitement of life.

Goals help you to make better decisions.

Goals help you live your life the way YOU want.

Goals help bring out “the best” in you.

Goals develop self-confidence.


Your goals should be written down. Writing down your goals forces you to clarify your thoughts. If you cannot express your goal clearly and succinctly in writing, you will probably need to revisit the goal to make sure that you are focusing on what you really want to accomplish. Reviewing your written goals serves as a constant and visual reminder of your objectives, which helps you to stay focused and motivated during competing demands, interruptions, and setbacks. Written goals have permanence that promote accurate, sustained action.

“Goals are dreams with deadlines.”    – Diana Scharf Hunt

You must develop habits to work each day toward achievement. As you begin to see the benefits of your actions you will receive the positive reinforcement to continue to move forward.  For a similar post on our website see I DON'T NEED TO SET GOALS.
