What I Learned in 35 Years of Setting and Achieving Annual Goals
“If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”
– Zig Ziglar
In 1981, I was out on New Year’s Eve with a very good friend of mine, when the topic of setting goals came up in the conversation. Being New Year's Eve, it was inevitable that we would reflect upon the previous year and start thinking ahead to what we planned to achieve in the next year. We quickly came up with our goals for 1982, and literally scribbled them down on the back of a napkin at the bar. It was the first time I had set annual goals, and have not stopped since.
