Continue Learning, Write Down Goals, and you will Succeed!

For most of my life I’ve been a fan of goal settings.  Furthermore, I usually like writing goals down.  However, I must admit that although a fan, I have not remained consistently faithful to the practice year after year.  I can tell you though that the practice does work.  Sure it may sometimes take a little longer than planned.  But the process of setting a goal, writing down, and then periodically checking progress is a good thing.  Last year I set a goal to read six books.  The logic was simple.  Surely, I could read at least one...
