The Define Precision of Goals _ You should act with intelligence because what is real today is based on your past, on your previous experiences. So if you limit your future based on your past, you won\'t go anywhere. You need to set goals that are big enough to drive you. So do not stop and go \"How do I do it?\" It is not the first step. The initial phase is getting it all written down, and if you do that, you can create and shape your own paradise, whatever you choose to create. It starts with a simple process of taking these generalized dream impulses and then to define them with more precision.
I repeat _ this \'study\' is an urban myth _ whilst it is quoted by some \'authorities\' and famous gurus on management and self_leadership, there is NO record of the study and NO paper on it. Yet its allure is understandable _ it feeds beautifully into the concept that in order for you to accumulate wealth (aka be successful) not only must you have specific goals, but you must write them down. For someone selling a process on written goal setting (see Zig Ziglar and Tony Robbins) it \'proves\' the process. So is goal_setting really important, or is it just a load of twaddle? To answer this question, rather than rely on stories of spurious origin, it\'s important to have some robust research to find out if there\'s anything in it.
