Began the 2014 goals early; December 29, 2013 is a new start toward time management.

Started by unsubscribing from a few emails, eliminating some duplicate ones; this is only the beginning of removing irrelevant items working toward freeing up time in being more productive in the pursuits of completing a nonfiction book in  2014.

Achieving goals take work, as Paul J. Meyer says, “Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people’s criticisms, carry out your plan.”

The other part of achieving goals as Henry David Thoreau said, “What you get by achieving goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”

If your are someone who hasn’t set goals and followed through to the end in the past, there is no time like the present to begin by making a clear statement about what goal you want to achieve and a plan to follow through to completion.

Following through to achieving your goal is something special as Epictetus said, “Not every difficult and dangerous thing is suitable for training, but only that which is conducive to success in achieving the object of our effort.”

How many people you know set New Year’s resolutions, and then actually follow through with them.

It is better to set goals for the year, and then work toward them while remaining flexible. No one knows what curve balls may come your way.

Achieving one’s goals will teach you many lessons along the way toward making you a better person once you achieve your goal. It is the journey that will teach you if you are open to the lessons along the path of achieving your goals.

Enjoy your journey.
