Achievement and consistent improvement start with a goal and work through a plan. – S. Paul Moehring


We live in such complicated times, wouldn’t you agree? Just learning how to use your cell phone today would require an entire semester of college. And I don’t mean just answering the phone and saying “Hello” I mean really learning all of the functionality of that cell phone.

The reason I chose this quote is that it is not a product of the complications we face today, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The simplicity of the components makes it easy to understand but yet if you desire achievement and consistent improvement, having a goal and working through a plan are foundational to your success. And who doesn’t yearn to achieve or consistently improve?

In today’s fast-paced society, if you’re not moving forward then you’re moving backward in comparison to everything that’s happening around you. Extinction becomes possible when planning, innovation, and adaptation cease. So, it’s vitally important that we don’t cease but continue to stay sharp and continue to invest in ourselves so we can avoid extinction and embrace lifetime learning as a positive habit akin to taking care of ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Set goals, build a plan, and then take action and execute!


Think of the last time that you set a goal, made a plan to achieve that goal, and then followed through and succeeded by accomplishing that goal.

On the deepest level possible, how did that make you feel?
