What are your goal in life? What do you want to achieve?

For some of you, the answer to those questions might be easy, and top of mind.

For others, you may really have to think about your goals… and you wouldn’t be alone!

Numerous studies have shown that less than 3% of Americans have set goals, and less than 1% review and rewrite their goals on a daily basis.

Let that sink in: less than 1% of people in the United States have ever written down the things they want to achieve most in this world…

That’s crazy!

And when we look at that 1%, what we find is pretty amazing. The people who not only write down and document their goals, but also rewrite them and revisit them consistently, are at least 10 times more successful than their non-goal-writing counterparts.

So why is goal-setting so important? Yes, it will help you become more successful, but why is that?

This is because: If you make the habit of being able to set goals and achieve them regularly, you will have unlocked the key to success.

If you think about it in the simplest terms, all achievement in the world comes down to setting goals and then achieving those goals. Every big goal can be broken down into a sequence of smaller, more achievable goals, in the same way that any huge task can be broken down into smaller, more achievable tasks. From there it’s just a matter of time and continued effort until each goal is achieved.

So, if you want to achieve your goals, if you really want to turn your thoughts, your dreams into action, the best place to start is by writing them down.

These goals can be big or small. They can be things that you want to accomplish today, this week, the month, this year… even in the next 10 years or at some point in your life!

And truth be told—you should have goals for ALL these time intervals. Starting with your lifetime goals, you can break down the action steps, then map them to years, months and even days. But we’ll cover this in detail in Week 5: “Taking Action”.

That being said, you can probably guess what today’s challenge is going to be…
