2 Goals Are Better Than 1
It’s hard to succeed at anything without a clear goal.
Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age. Albert Einstein
I think Albert Einstein is right. We must have clear goals and we must have defined values about how we will achieve them.
It’s hard to just set one goal; setting two is easier.
When you establish both a quantified goal and a behavioral goal at the same time, they work hand in hand to propel you forward.
I want to get 100 people to an Art Show (quantified goal). A behavioral goal might be to make 5 calls to invite people each day.
This is how it works
The behavioral goal outlines the way he will reach the quantifiable goal. Alone, the quantifiable objective might be overwhelming; but the behavioral goal breaks it down into manageable activities.
Every minute you spend in your life is either spent bringing you closer to your goals or moving you away from your goals. Bo Bennett
Of course, as you work toward your goal, don’t neglect to set aside time on a regular basis to evaluate your progress. Done this way, the goal-setting formula looks much like directions for a trip: You set a destination, chart a way there, evaluate progress along the way, and repeat as needed.
Don’t be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal becomes a mini goal in itself. Denis Waitley

A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals. Larry Bird
