Goal setting; why bother?

Although most people might have a general idea of the things they want out of life, the vast majority won’t end up accomplishing them. Obviously there are several possible reasons, but studies show that the primary reason people (up to 96% of people!) aren’t reaching their goals is because they don’t write them down.

Write it down!

Simply saying, “I want to get a promotion” or “I want to climb Kilimanjaro” and keeping it in the back of your mind makes it difficult to obtain. Writing it down, breaking it up into manageable steps and forming a game plan makes the thought tangible. Being able to read your goals and having a daily reminder increases your chances of it actually obtaining it.
