I like reading the tiny coffee sticker quotes I have collected. This one is a good reminder this time of year.
Here is the coffee sticker quote:
"Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor."
Here is the relevance I see in this quote:
Around the New Year, many people are all jazzed up and are setting goals and resolutions. It is a time to plan out what we want to do and accomplish this next year and work towards it. Now that it is Summer, what have you done about your goals?
The essence of that quote is the word goals. If you are not setting goals, you will not be able to control the direction of change in your life. Goals that are not written down are just wishes, dreams, hopes. Those are all good. However, written goals give you that needed spark to commit to doing something and thus, "control the direction of change in your favor."
It all starts with that one phrase, "I will . . ."
Now, go set some great goals for the rest of 2013.
