Many of us have so many goals that we end up pursuing two dozen of them poorly, rather than three or four with laser-like focus and unflagging effort.  Establishing achievement dates for our goals helps us decide which ones warrant the majority of today’s time and energy.

Often it turns out that we have underestimated the true time, effort, and knowledge required to accomplish our goals.  We run out of patience and passion, or lose sight of the goal’s purpose.  Most of our goals can be met if they have realistic achievement dates and we work to stay committed to them. 

If we don’t achieve our goal within our time frame, we can always set a new achievement date. 

“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it,  but that it is too low and we reach it.”      -- Michelangelo

Craft and commit to progress-based goals.
