Objective Setting

"If you dont know where you are going you'll probably end up somewhere else" - Anon


The ability to set clear objectives and to communicate them to others is one of the most important skills that you will ever learn.
Studies at Harvard University showed that only 7% of the students set clear, definable goals when they left. Twenty years later that 7% had amassed more wealth than the other 93% put together. Not only that but they scored consistently more highly on other criteria such as social integration, happy family life, good physical health, etc.
