I recently tweeted (in December 2012) one of Napoleon Hill’s best quotes “A goal is a dream with a deadline.” As I was typing, I realized that simply tweeting this quote did not do justice to one this quotes most important points. During our quarterly planning GrowthCLUB workshop we invest a considerable amount of time discussing the definition of a goal and how to convert dreams into goals. We discuss taking my client’s dreams and desires into SMARTER goals.
- Time Sensitive
- Extending capabilities
Once the participants in the GrowthCLUB create goals, they prioritize them, put them into a logical order and then list them in the next quarter’s ActionPLAN, or place them into a “Parking Lot” to be included in subsequent ActionPLANs. We can and do have extended, in depth discussions about this subject, as there are many, many layers to it. Yet, in a simple eight-word sentence Napoleon Hill captures the essential message. So, I ask you, what are you doing to turn your dreams into goals, into plans, into action? My colleagues and I are ready to assist you in taking your dreams to action to success. All you have to do is contact one of us.
