I try to be a better person each day of my life. Not saying that I'm always successful but at least it's on my mind. Each year at this time people talk about New Year's resolutions, but few follow through. Why? Maybe it's because there was no road map, no strategic plan.
We set goals such as "I will lose weight" but that's too general, we need to be more specific. I will lose 10 pounds in the next 10 months and I will do that by not snacking while sitting on the couch. Now that's a plan.
I like to associate life with the game of football. There's a goal at the end of the field and you get there with a game plan. On each down the quarterback calls a play and that play has a specific plan. No plan, no goal! You can do anything in this world, the only thing that will stop you will be you!
I found a web site that is chocked full of good stuff to help us travel down the highway of life in the happy lane. Lots of good articles such as "7 questions to find passion" or "A better person in 7 days." This is a site where you could spend all day reading and getting motivated!
