2008 is almost over; did you reach your goals?

Each year, people make New Year’s Resolutions for change, only to find that they didn't achieve their goals – and then they make the same resolutions again the following year. Regardless of the goal, one of the major reasons that people fail to achieve their goals is that they do not have a goal-setting process for success.

So what makes a good goal? Goal setting provides a target to aim for so that you can make better decisions about how to utilize your time and effort for both business and personal goals.

A good goal is one that is worthy of individual pursuit; that, of course, is highly subjective, so far be it from us to define what your worthy pursuit is.
All goals, no matter what they are, start with a plan!
So what is your Goal-Plan? A good Goal-Plan is one that when followed, offers a reasonably high probability of success, given sufficient time.
