I promise this is only a phase of sappy, inspiration but as a reader of this blog, you have to trudge through my phases. I hope no one is reminded of Patrick Swayze’s character in Donnie Darko.
Write out a clear, concise statement of that which you intend to accomplish, as your definitive chief aim, covering a period of, let us say, the next 5 years. Make at least two copies of your statement, one to be placed where you can read it several times a day, while you are at work, and the other to be placed in the room where you sleep, where it can be read several times each evening before you go to sleep and just after you arise in the morning.
In 5 years I intend to purchase a house in Philadelphia, find a wife to raise a family with, and grow my business to levels never seen before in the company’s history. I will approach all 3 of these with the seriousness they deserve and not approach any of them with a negative mentality. A positive approach will attract people to my goals. I will also start playing golf in the 70’s. These 3 (4) goals will get accomplished in the next 5 years.
