Where Do You Find The Seeds Of Your Future?
It's easy to begin thinking about what you want in your life. Collect your thoughts on paper over several days or weeks. Let these day dreams guide you in setting your personal goals.
Your goals are seeds of possibility for your future. Gather them up and plant them with care.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Set Goals Color: Convert Dreams Into Hard Targets with Specific Milestones.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Where would you like to be 5, 10 or 20 years from now?
- Do you have a journal or favorite binder you could use to write down your personal goals?
- How about writing down what you want, right now? No excuses. Start it today!
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Set Goals Factor 4A? (Convert Dreams Into Hard Targets with Specific Milestones.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (4A rated 8 or better) suggests you have the power to be both a dreamer and a doer. You have the faith that you can make things happen if you want them badly enough. This gives you the confidence to go beyond wishful thinking, and identify exactly what you want in real-world terms. With a specific target in sight, you are then able to map a course of action to the desired destination. Once a goal is identified, you find it easy to commit to what it takes -- because time and effort are spent on reaching tangible targets -- rather than idly fantasizing about "someday" dreams.
A lack of commitment suggests you are only a dreamer. Perhaps you can't get more specific about your dreams because you don't believe they are attainable. It's safer to think of them in gross generalizations with no more than a "someday" as a deadline date. Unfortunately, with no specific long-term goals fixed in "space and time," your career, relationships and other major interests lack clear direction. Regrettably, goals that lack believability, details or dates remain wisps of smoke -- with nothing firm to grasp.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 4A more frequently?
You have more power. You have "do-able" dreams that have an excellent chance of succeeding.
You accumulate performance positives like "Realistic, Precise and Proactive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 4A?
You have less power. Your dreams don't have a chance of becoming real.
Negatives like "Wishful, Nebulous and Passive" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
