“many people think that they already have goals. alas! what they really have is a series of wishes or dreams, like ‘be happy’ or ‘make a lot of money’ or ‘have a nice family life’… A goal, however, is something distinctly different from a wish. it is clear, written and specific. it can be quickly and easily described to another person. you can measure it, and you know when you have achieved it or not” – Goals! (10)
writing down your wishes and dreams is one of the first steps to creating your goals. make your wishes and dreams something tangible, so they’re not just flying around in your head for the rest of your life. once you do this, it’s all about goal setting (how you plan on getting there).
