Clear, Written Goals - Thought For The Day

Dear Children,

What does it take to succeed on a big scale? A tremendous talent? Inherited wealth?

A decade of postgraduate education? Connections with the top people in your field?

Fortunately for most of us, what it takes is something very simple and accessible: clear, written goals.

A study of Harvard graduates found that after 20 years, the three percent of them who had written goals achieved more than the other 97% combined!

An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals.

With Love, Amma-Naana
