October 2011 Goals

Think of a ship with the complete voyage mapped out and planned. The captain and crew know exactly where the ship is going and how long it will take — it has a definite goal. And 9,999 times out of 10,000, it will get there.

Now let’s take another ship — just like the first — only let’s not put a crew on it, or a captain at the helm.

Let’s give it no aiming point, no goal, and no destination. We just start the engines and let it go.

I think you’ll agree that if it gets out of the harbor at all, it will either sink or wind up onsome deserted beach — a derelict. It can’t go anyplace because it has no destination and no guidance.  No goal.

–Earl Nightingale

Lately I’ve been knocking out my monthly goals pretty well……now I just have to keep the ball rolling.
