4 INSPIRATIONAL QUO TES "The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach." --Benjamin Mays "By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands — your own." --Mark Victor Hansen "The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and actualizer... He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen." --Robert L. Schwartz 4

5 Effective Goals 5

6 SMART GOALS SMART Acronym Newly Defined for Goal Setting S - In addition to specific, don't stretching, systematic, synergistic, significant and shifting round out the picture? M - means measurable, but I also recommend meaningful, memorable, motivating and even, magical. 6

7 SMART GOALS A - is an achievable goal but A also needs to stand for action plans, accountability, acumen and agreed-upon. R - means relevant, but it also stands for realistic, reasonable, resonating, results- oriented, rewarding, responsible, reliable, rooted in facts and remarkable. T - means time-based and it also represents timely, tangible and thoughtful. 7
