    • Turn Dreams to Reality
      First make sure your dreams are in alignment with your beliefs and values.
      People do things for two reasons:
      Gain Pleasure
      Avoid Pain
      If you don’t know where you are headed, any path will get you there
    • Dreams
      “The moment of enlightenment is when a person’s dreams of possibilities become images of probabilities.”Vic Braden
      “Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.”Belva Davis
    • Smart Goals
      S = Specific
      M = Measurable
      A = Attainable
      R = Realistic
      T = Timely
    • Be Specific
      Goals should be straightforward and emphasize what you want to happen.
      Specific is the What, Why, and How of the SMART model.
      WHAT are you going to do? Use action words such as direct, organize, coordinate, lead, develop, plan, build etc.
      WHY is this important to do at this time? What do you want to ultimately accomplish?
      HOW are you going to do it?
    • Measurable
      If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it
      Choose a goal with measurable progress, so you can see the change occur. Be specific!
      Establish criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal .When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goals.
    • Attainable
      When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop that attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them.
      Goals you set which are too far out of your reach, you probably won’t commit to doing.
    • Realistic
      Realistic, in this case, means “do-able” not easy. A realistic project may push the skills and knowledge of the people working on it but it shouldn’t break them.
      Devise a plan or a way of getting there which makes the goal realistic.
      Be sure to set goals that you can attain with some effort.
      Set the bar high enough for a satisfying achievement.
    • Time targeted
      Set a time target on all goals. This keeps you focused and hold you accountable
      If you don’t set a time, the commitment is too vague.
      Without a time limit, there’s no urgency to start taking action now.
      Split it up in to steps if the goal is overwhelming
    • Now Lets set a goal and Make some money
      Money is fun right?

      Francis of Assisi
