Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Goals Bring Clarity

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Clarity – Certainty, clearness. Tom had a clarity about his life and where he was going.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

On May 25, 1961 John F. Kennedy made his famous “Decision to Go to the Moon” speech before the Joint Session in Congress:

“First, I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish. We propose to accelerate the development of the appropriate lunar space craft. We propose to develop alternate liquid and solid fuel boosters, much larger than any now being developed, until certain which is superior. We propose additional funds for other engine development and for unmanned explorations–explorations which are particularly important for one purpose which this nation will never overlook: the survival of the man who first makes this daring flight. But in a very real sense, it will not be one man going to the moon–if we make this judgment affirmatively, it will be an entire nation. For all of us must work to put him there.”

Rich Habit Lesson of the Day

Goals help us to focus on accomplishing our dreams. 70% of the wealthy in my study set long-term goals. Goals help bring clarity to what we are trying to accomplish in life. Goals work like a magnifying glass works in focusing the sunlight. Goals help focus our activities. Activities which are time wasters and do not get us closer to our goal become obvious, only when we set goals. The 80/20 Rule applies to goal-setting. 20% of our activities are responsible for 80% of goal achievement. The rest of our activities are time wasters. Only when we set clear, well-defined goals will we begin to see which activities get us closer to our goal and which do not.
