The Power of Goals

I’ve been using Seth Godin’s update of Zig Ziglar’s goals program entitled “Pick Four” this week and in preparation for my solitude retreat in December.

It’s been an amazing week. My goals include writing and publishing my book by December of this year, getting down to hiking weight, getting 8 hours of sleep a night, walking 4+ miles a day and of course blogging here every day.

If you are following along, you can track with me how I do on the blogging front. I promise to keep the other goals updated as well.

I’ve found this process to be very energizing this week. I’ve gotten the book roughed out and into an amazing format through FastPencil fastpencil.com

Through this process I’ve had many creative ideas for other books and articles, on coaching, writing, marriage enrichment, intercessory prayer, communication…the ideas keep on flowing.

This is an amazingly invigorating process. Here is a quote I’ll end with for today from Zig Ziglar: “Obstacles are the things we see when we take our eyes off our goals.”
