"You must have long range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short
range failures." --Charles C. Noble

"Luck is what you have left over after you give 100 percent."  --Langston

"Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose--a
point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye." --Mary Wollstonecraft

"If you want to conquer fear, don't sit at home and think about it. Go out
and get busy. "    --Dale Carnegie

"Unless the distant goals of meaning, greatness, and destiny are addressed,
we can't make an intelligent decision about what to do tomorrow
morning--much less set the long-term strategy for a company. Nothing is more
practical than for people to deepen  themselves."  --Peter Koestenbaum

"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become
by achieving your goals."
 --Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"There is no passion to be found playing small--in settling for a life that
is less than the one you are capable of living."
 --Nelson Mandela

"Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an
incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources
and draw the best out of life."   --Harvey Mackay

"Setting goals is one of the most important things you can do to guarantee
your personal, professional and financial success. Goals are like a road map
to your target destination. Each goal accomplished is another mile behind
you on the way to where you want to be."   --Mark Victor Hansen

what is a goal?

   1. A goal is a dream with a deadline.

   2. A goal is something you're committed to accomplishing.

   3. A goal is a dream you are willing to work for.

   4. It's specific--it's a clearly-stated objective.

   5. It's measurable. You'll know when you've achieved it.

   6. It's worthwhile--to YOU. It must be worthy of your best.

   7. A goal is personal--it's yours--not something that someone
      has 'should' on you.

All men are alike in their dreams, and all men are alike in the promises
they make. The difference is what they do.'
 --Moliere, 15th Century French Playwright
