Of course, most people don’t bother to write down their goals. Instead, they drift through life aimlessly, wondering why their life lacks purpose and significance. I am not saying that committing your goals to writing is the end-game. It’s not. But it is the beginning.
The internet is a fun and wide open community. I spend times in different "neighborhoods" where I get to meet different people and be exposed to different ideas.
Michael Hyatt's blog is one neighborhood I hang out in occasionally. I doubt that Mr. Hyatt and I would ever cross paths in real life, but on the internet we have a bit of a one way relationship (he writes, I get a notification that he wrote and decide if I want to read it). It's working for use right now.
OK, humor aside, Hyatt has some good things to say/write. I'm sure you can find some stuff to criticize too but that's not the point of this post. The point is that he has an excellent post on why you should commit goals to paper. I am a big believer in both goal setting and putting them on paper. Click the link above and enjoy.
