I stumbled across a new website yesterday that has some interesting articles. Two of them really hit home for me. Ever since I started Body for Life not quite a year ago, I have been very focused on goal setting. First my goals were short term physical goals; however, since I found the process so useful I discovered that I was naturally incorporating more and more goal setting into my life both personally and professionally. This change has dramatically increased both my productivity and my general level of optimism. The website above has two excellent articles on goal setting: The Power of Clarity and Cultivating Burning Desire. The first article emphasizes the importance of articulating clear and precise objective goals. The second article builds on the first and suggests some creative ideas for motivating yourself to achieve those goals.
