What gets written down, gets done

We are fast approaching the end of the year. Very soon, 2007 will be in the history books. What did you accomplish this year? What goals got pushed aside? Are you healthier? Are you happier?

Start thinking about 2008, you need to set aside some time next month to work on your goals. Break them down into categories: health (mental/spiritual & physical), financial, relationships (family & friends), work/business, fun for me.

Break those categories down into time frames: 90 day goals, 1 year goals, and 5 year goals. You need to jumpstart some of these categories, while considering where you wish to be in 5 years.

A friend of mine says, "most people overestimate what they can accomplish on one year, and the underestimate what they can accomplish in ten years."

Some things to think about: do you want to be debt free? where have you always wanted to travel? would you like to learn a new language? would you like to play the guitar or piano? who is the best kind of woman for you? what is your ideal weight? what is your field of competition? do you have reliable friends? do you want a family? do you have a dream vacation?

Once you write it down, you will be amazed how often it comes true.

What gets written down, gets done. Good intentions are easily forgotten.
