Last year I wrote a book on goal setting.  I am now in the process of editing that book.  As I edit, I will post excerpts here on my blog.  This is from chapter two:

No more boredom

Here is a side benefit to setting goals.

You will not experience boredom.  Boredom comes from a lack of direction.

When you have direction, you will always have something to do.

I am rarely bored.  There are too many books to read.  There are too many trails to ride.  There are too many languages to learn.

I do not get bored because I know what I want to do.

When I have free time, I rarely stand around wondering what to do.  I have plenty to do.  It’s all on my checklist.

Lack of boredom is one of the great benefits of goal setting.


Almost every Saturday, I send out a Tip of the Week.  It’s just something I have picked up along the way that may make your life a little easier.  If you would like to hear from me (almost) every Saturday, just go to the home page of my site and plug in your name and email.   You will also get a free copy of my book on learning Latin (and almost anything else).  Just go here:

If you are interested in learning Latin, you can go through the classes on my site 24/7.  I recommend the book Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg.  If you tackle the book and find yourself bogged down, you may find the classes on my site helpful.  To join, just click here:

If you want a more professionally filmed experience, check out the best-selling DVD series: Visual Latin.

Or, if you want to skip Latin, and just jump right into learning English words from Latin and Greek roots, you may enjoy the series Word Up!  Warning.   Word Up! is a bit wacky.  You will learn a lot… but, you may find yourself rolling your eyes, too.
