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 three:

Do not get too carried away at this point

Chances are, you will change your goals later.  Plan to take a few shots at goal-setting (just like I did) before you get it just right.

And, plan on adjusting your goals as you age.  There is no reason to let this get you down.  This is just the way the goal-setting game is played.

There is no shame at all in not hitting a bulls-eye with your first shot.  Your goals will change as you go through life.  Plan on it.  Set goals anyway.

Post your goals

Once you have your goal written down, post it someplace obvious.

For example, my goals are on my desk.  I see them every day.  It is impossible to ignore them.

You could post your goal on your refrigerator, your bathroom mirror, or the back of you bathroom door.

Post your goal somewhere obvious.  You will see your goal every day.

When you see your goal every day, it is hard to forget your goal.  It is easy to stay focused.

It’s hard to get lost when you are constantly checking the map.



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.
