Goal Setting

Reesa and I have attended numerous "Personal Development" or "Motivational" seminars throughout our Professional careers. We always come away energized and invigorated as these sessions are designed to do. Inevitably all of the "moderators"/"coaches" throw out an excercise for eveyone to do and it surrounds goal setting.

This excercise in to plan 10/20/50 or 100 things you want to do before you die.


How Long Do You Give Yourself..."before you die," that is?

Do you give yourself 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 50 years?

Well the truth is that one NEVER knows!

Rather than worrying about "how long" I suggest you write down these goals and then "Enjoy The Journey", to paraphrase my brother's suggestion.

Setting a time limited goal is certainly good for some activities but does create undue pressure to achieve within that frame.

Remember that Life is a Journey and achieving goals are journeys within the journey-so ENJOY.
