Consider this a wake up call. Success in any endeavor does not happen by accident. It is the result of deliberate decisions, conscious efforts and immense persistence. And it begins with defined goals.
A builder cannot construct a home without first outlining a blueprint. A pilot cannot fly a plane without first submitting a flight plan. A minister cannot deliver his sermon without first framing his message. You cannot design an extraordinary life without a solid foundation… GOALS!
Too many people expect to arrive at success without planning and working hard. The game of life is won behind the scenes, in time spent on preparation. Time invested in strategy and planning is well worth it. Rather than focusing on how much time it takes to set goals, think about how much time it will take you to correct mistakes that come from lack of planning!
“Great things are accomplished by talented people who believe they will accomplish them.” ~Warren G. Bennis
