Quote of the Week

"Until you commit your goals to paper, you have intentions that are seeds without soil." -- Anonymous

There's nothing wrong with dreaming big. In fact, I would say there's something wrong with not dreaming big! Think you'd be a good fit for that managerial or VP position? What about making enough money to take a European vacation? These are things you can do...but you have to start at the beginning, with a pen and a piece of paper.

Most big goals need a plan - and to create a plan you need to write down action steps and commit to them. If you want to go on vacation next year, how much extra money do you need to make? Do you need to sign one more contract each month? Every three months?

Once you know what it will take to reach your goal, you can continue breaking it down into manageable pieces. Maybe you need to go to a networking event every month to meet enough new prospects that will become your extra contract. Or maybe you need to get into the office half an hour earlier to get a few more calls in.

The point is, writing your goals down makes them more manageable - and attainable!
