“We are 43% more likely to achieve our goals if we write them down.” ~Professor Gail Matthews, PhD
Leadership expert, John Maxwell, stated in his book, Your Road Map for Success, “German poet and novelist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once said, ‘Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.’ Maybe that’s why so few people follow through and act on their goals. According to Gregg Harris, two-thirds of people surveyed (sixty-seven of one hundred) set goals for themselves. But of those sixty-seven, only ten have made realistic plans to reach their goals. And out of those ten, only two follow through and actually make them happen.”

Think about the reality of that, they started with surveying one hundred (100) people. Of those one hundred (100), sixty-seven (67) of them set goals. Of the sixty-seven (67) that set goals, only ten (10) created action plans to achieve the goals set. Of the ten (10) that created the actions plans, only two (2) made the goals a reality. That’s two (2) out of one hundred (100) people who actually achieved their goals.

For someone like me, those numbers are alarming. And they support my view on why writing goals and executing an action plan to achieve them are vital. With that in mind, I highly encourage you to consider setting goals for amazing 2021. To make the process easier, I have created the Vision2021 Goals Template…download your copy for free below:
