Need a bit of Motivation?

"If you think you can, or if you think you can't, either way, you're right." Henry Ford

Start setting your goals:

1Develop several goals. A list of five to seven items gives you several things to work on over a period of time.

2State goals as declarations of intention, not items on a wish list.

3. Attach a date to each goal. State what you intend to accomplish and by when. A good list should include some short-term and some long-term goals.

4. Be specific.  Sometimes a more general goal can become the long-term aim, and you can identify some more specific goals to take you there.

5Share your goals with someone who cares if you reach them.

6Write down your goals and put them where you will see them. The more often you read your list, the more results you get.

7Review and revise your list. Experiment with different ways of stating your goals. Goal setting improves with practice, so play around with it.
