On Goals and Actions
I just have two questions for you today.
1. What are three things you want to accomplish with your life?
Really think about your answer to that for a few minutes, if you don’t already know.
Your list doesn’t have to include things like bringing about world peace or stamping out hunger, but it should include goals that are important to you personally. In other words, your answer should include things you really would like to accomplish before you leave this earth.
Write those things down.
Now, answer the next question:
2. What have you done today to bring yourself closer to accomplishing one or more of those things?
If you can list something, chances are good that you’ll get to where you want to be.
If you can’t, there’s no time like the present to make a change.
I know, you’re busy. But make the time. Get up a half hour earlier. Turn off the internet. Skip your usual lunch. Say no to something that isn’t on your list of important things.
Do what matters, instead of what’s ordinary.
