If someone is trying to tell you they have the secret to success or that you can make a lot of money doing very little – walk away.
There is no secret to success.
There is focus, there is determination and hard work.
The success that people achieve in life has come from having a plan, rolling up their sleeves and getting to work. Simple in its form, but achieved only through tenacity and dedication.
There is a saying, “if you don’t know where you are going, any road can get you there.”
While life is a journey, we can either be the sailor or the captain. We can either go along for the ride or steer the ship.
Goals are our beacons. Beacons in the distance that we can set our sights on. What we want and where we want to go in life.
When we have goals we can set clear action steps. We can determine what we need to do in order to get what we want and where we want to go.
When we know what we want, where we want to go and what we need to do, we have a plan.
The ethos of goal setting is to do this on a broad level. To do it in as many areas of our life as possible, to continually track our goals and our action steps. To be able to stay efficient and make the best use of our time and energy in getting what we want and going where we want..
Once we have achieved our goals, what is next? We set more goals. We work toward and achieve those goals and then set more goals. When it is all said and done we will have made the most of the gift of life.
We will have done as much as we could and have done it at our very best.
This is the ethos of goal setting.
