Personal Goal Setting

Texas oil billionaire H.L. Hunt once said that there are only two ingredients necessary for success. The first is that you have to decide exactly what it is that you want.

This is where he believed many stumble. They never decide what it is that they really want. They may think they want something from time to time, usually something generic and vague like "being rich" or "a better job," but it's just a fleeting thought; they never truly commit.

Hunt said that once you've decided what it is that you want, the second ingredient is to determine the price you have to pay to get what you want, and then resolve to pay that price by establishing your priorities and getting to work.

Many who get past the first ingredient never apply the second one. They don't understand that you have to pay the price in full before you can claim your prize.

You can think of goal setting as a process that helps you to decide exactly what it is that you want, and then to systematically pay the price in order to get it. It is a process that helps you focus your time and energy on your targets through careful and deliberate planning.
