It's obvious from this weeks poll that very few people (ONLY 13%)have a detailed plan that maps out exactly how they are going to achieve the goals they set. Without a detailed plan, the chances of achieving your goals on time or at all are greatly diminished. This should not come as a surprise to anyone.
Each week as I prepare these polls and write the Pre and Post Commentaries, I want to believe that there are visitors to this site that I am making some headway with. I am very happy that people seem to be honest with their answers. If they were not, I think the results would prove to be much better. However, I am hoping that I am making an impact on some lives.
As a contestant in the "Game of Life," I am always looking to invest my precious time in the BEST activities possible. There are so many activities to choose from. Some are fun. Some are productive. Some are a total waste of time and energy. If you want to be the contestant that wins the prizes in life, there's NO TIME to waste on category three above. Your time will run out and the game will be over before you get what you want out of life.
There are lots of people that make their living by writing books about how to achieve things in life. They know all the theories and all the steps one should take to get what they want. Many authors sell lots of books and make lots of money. However many of them don't even follow their own advice.
In contrast to the above, I do not make any money from the advice I post on this website. I have no hidden agendas for the visitors and readers of these polls. However, I know what I write works because I do what I say. I have written plans. If I didn't, I could not consistently produce the work I do on this site. I plan in advance, on a timetable and stick to my plan. No excuses. I would like to see as many of my visitors do the same. That would make the investment of my precious time to produce this information worthwhile.
Now is a good time to review the first six weeks of this Goal Setting System. Don't be a skeptic. Get down and dirty and make stuff happen in your life. There are no shortcuts to achievement. It requires lots of planning, no excuse execution and great passion. You can get just about whatever you want if you dot every i and cross every t. Get started on your DETAILED PLAN now. Don't let me down. But most of all - DON'T LET YOURSELF DOWN. Don't let tour time run out as a contestant in the game of life, before you get all or most of what you have dreamed of. YOU CAN DO IT!
