Weekend Inspiration: Goals

With 2011 coming soon, I’ve been thinking about goals a lot lately.  How about you?

I’ve been trying to decide what goals are both realistic and a stretch for me.  There’s a fine line in there somewhere between setting a crazy impossible goal and setting a goal that will be challenging and exciting enough to pull me forward.

I found this quote that’s given me a lot to think about and might make you think, too:

An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals. ~Brian Tracy

Here’s a great article on goal setting from Brian Tracy’s blog: http://www.briantracy.com/blog/general/planning-your-year/

P.S. If you could use a little help setting and reaching your goals, or if getting a system setup for social media is one of your goals, be sure to stop by and download your free gifts at http://smallbizchristmas.com/todays-holiday-gifts/

  1. I am ready for big things. I am the first to admit sometimes my ambition far exceeds my talent at the moment. I don’t let that deter me. If you truly want something, and are willing to work for it, you can get it figured out.

    Most success online in 2011, Michelle!

    1. I love how you put that — “at the moment” — such a great way to word it. Skills can be learned, tasks can be outsourced, we can find a way to make things happen if we’ve got the ambition and put our hearts into it. :)
