You can achieve your goals with sufficient planning by knowing yourself, focusing on your journey, and giving yourself clearly-defined, achievable, and measurable tasks. This book will help you dream and will give you resources and tips for reaching all types of goals. This system is based on the one that I used since I was a very serious child with dreams of a successful career. Now, as a lawyer with one of the best firms in America, I am ready to share what worked for me, updated with the latest research on the science of achievement.
Ultimately, the best way to accomplish your goals is to understand them, from why you pursue them to what steps you need to take. The book begins by helping you to identify the purpose of your pursuit, which will give you motivation and help you select goals that meaningfully contribute to your life. Turning to the nuances, this book helps you to plan out how you are going to accomplish goals, using specific, achievable, measurable tasks—a system backed by decades of research on successful goals. The book ends by teaching you how to follow through in the face of procrastination and other pitfalls. You will get the most out of this book if you have a means, like notepaper, to memorialize your goal-setting, particularly in later chapters.
