Write Your Goals Down

A Yale study, 1953-1973 on goal setting and later a Harvard study, 1979-1989; found that only 3% of the graduate students had written goals, 13% had goals but not written them down and 84% had no goals at all. Years later when surveyed it was found that the students with goals had succeeded far better than those without. In the case of the Harvard study the MBA students with written goals made 10x as much money as those with no goals at all. The lesson is clear: Write your goals down!
