Let's talk about meaningful goals. This is a subject that you would have great difficulty placing too much emphasis upon.
Sift through the reams of information cataloguing the differences between high and low performers and two shocking facts emerge. The people who have goals, achieve and enjoy far more than those who do not, and those who have written goals achieve the most of all.
A study was made of alumni, ten years out of Harvard University to find out how many were achieving their goals. The study revealed some very interesting information. An outstanding 83% had NO GOALS… NONE. They had absolutely no targets they were working toward. 14% had specific goals but were not written down. However, they were earning three times the income the 83% were earning.
That is interesting, but listen to this. The 3% group who had specific goals, clearly written to read and review were earning 10 times the income of the 83% who had no goals. Pretty amazing!
J.C. Penny, founder of the retail store chain that bears his name said, “Give me a stock clerk with a goal, and I’ll give you a person who will make history. Give me a person without a goal and I’ll give you a stock clerk.”
Think about what is important to you. Write it down, say them out loud, share them with someone who you trust will encourage you! Then take action!
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
