Goals Are Good

We all remember certain phrases that shape our lives.  I’ve had the opportunity to work with great people and, like a sponge, I am able to soak up so much knowledge and information. One such simple phrase was uttered by Brett Harrison a few years ago, “goals, goals are good, they get stuff done!” Let’s look at why this phrase has stuck with me.

For those of you that have spent time with Brett you probably got a chuckle out of this one. Outside of the main stage at conferences, etc. Brett is a man of few words. He is an accountant by trade and tries to focus his energies on logical solutions and getting to those solutions as quickly as possible.  

The quote stuck with me because although there are many books written on the subject of goals, many ways to write them down and different ways to take action the real reason we write down our goals is because they are our guide for getting stuff done. Plain and simple.

Let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year, ok maybe not, but I hope your year is off to great start. I look forward to working with many of you on your goals for 2018. If you haven’t taken the opportunity yet to articulate and firm up your 2018 goals, let’s get together an do that. We look forward to working with many of you on your goals for 2018. Here’s to the goals you have for the New Year and getting stuff done!
