Set Goals that are Measurable _ \"Determine a single measure that you can use to grade your progress and success in each area of your life. Refer to it daily.\" _ Brian Tracy. Goals are to be measurable solely for the benefit of being able to track your progress. It is no different than tracking your progress while driving your car to work. When you drive your car to work you know how far you\'ve gone and how far you need to go. It is simply not enough to say, \"I want to be physically fit.\" How will you know if you are physically fit? Try instead being more specific, an example of this might be, \"I run a 7 minute mile\". It\'s clear, precise, and measurable. _ Write Down Your Goals _ \"Write it down. Written goals have a way of transforming wishes into wants, cant\'s into cans, dreams into plans, and plans into reality. Don\'t just think it _ ink it!\" _ Author Unknown. Be sure that when you write down your goal it is clear, positive, and in present tense. An example of this is, \"I earn 贄ꯠ per year\". By simply writing down your goal you are making it become alive; you are making your goal a reality.
Goals and personal wealth _ Of those that had written their goal, their average personal wealth is GBP115000, whereas those who had not written their goal down, their average personal wealth was GBP295000. That\'s more than two and a half times as much! Completely contrary to the supposed Yale Study. We asked respondents when they left formal education and analyzed this against their estimated personal wealth. Those leaving formal education in the 1970\'s have an average wealth of GBP475000, 80\'s GBP195000 and 90\'s... GBP325000! It seems reasonable that those who have been in the workforce longer would have greater personal wealth and so it is... almost. The anomaly appears to be those who left formal education during the 80\'s. Those leaving in the 70\'s have generated on average 13귔 each year since leaving. 80\'s grads a miserly 7꼀 and those bright young things from the 90\'s, a whopping 21길!
