“A goal properly set is halfway reached.”
- Zig Ziglar
Quote of the Day.
“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” The work is half done! We can relax then, right? Unfortunately, this quote by Zig Ziglar does not necessarily mean that 50% of your overall effort is achieved just by writing down your goal. But a goal properly set does give you the direction, specific tasks, measurable milestones, and deadlines you need for achievement!
In short, a proper goal provides the structure you need to turn your dreams into reality – without misdirection, rework, delays and loss of focus. In some cases, the amount of time saved by proper goal-setting may actually save you 50% of the effort you would otherwise exert while trying to accomplish a task. But even without a 50% time savings, proper goal-setting is one of the best tools available for turning your dreams into reality!
