Why You Should Be Writing Down Your Goals - Forbes

Why You Should Be Writing Down Your Goals - Forbes | Life, Living, and Good Stuff to Know | Scoop.it
Why You Should Be Writing Down Your Goals
Forbes
We hear a lot about the importance of goal-setting, but most of us don't have clear and measurable goals to work towards. Even fewer of us actually have those goals written down.

Via Ann Zuccardy
Patrick Ciriello's insight:

If you don't where you want to go, you won't get there.

 

Fair Enough.

 

But why write things down?  Bio Feedback.  The act of writing it down makes it more "real" inside your own mind.  "Seeing" it makes it more permanent that just "hearing" it inside your head as an idea.

 

Once written down, it can move from a "goal" to a "plan", and you can actually start to create the steps necessary to make it reality.

Maybe you never think about it -- maybe you assume that admitting something like that undercuts your authority. But c'mon.
