Start with the End in Mind

In order to attain what you really want out of life, often its best to start with the end in mind. The "end" meaning what it is you really want. But, what if you don't know what you really want?

Well for starters, we can identify our goals. Here's an activity to get your goal juices flowing.

In less than 10 minutes, try to list 10 goals that you would like to accomplish. There are three rules in doing this:

1. Write them out in the present tense. They must be written.
2. They must be positive. For example, "I'll stop smoking."Thats not positive. Its better to say, "I am smoke-free."
3. Make each goal personal. That means something that requires your actions only. To say "My daughter is doing better in school." That requires her action, not yours. List goals that you have complete control over.

Once you've made your list, look at all ten goals and decide which goal will make the biggest impact on your life. Once you've identified it, circle it. That is your critical goal. Focus on it, think about it everyday and spend as much time as possible working on making it happen. GG
