From Book Synopsis

 

The power of goal setting.

While setting goals it is important  to remember that we do not go after achieving a given goals in one area of our life at the cost of other areas. For example, by working 16 to 18 hours a day, you might be able to establish a new business but you might get ulcers or heart-attacks in the process. You might alienate your spouse and children.

 

 

With this in mind, when you set your goals, have a holistic perspective. That is, look at your life in terms of it having different facts: business or professional, financial, physical and mental, educational/self-developmental, spiritual/religious/humanitarian, family and social.

Remember:

Vague goals will give you vague results. And specific goals will give you specific results.

Break down long term goals into short term goals.

What may not seem attainable today may become attainable in future.

You are limited only by your own imagination.

 

Rooshi principle.

“The quality of any answers that you will get in your life will depends entirely on the quality of the questions you ask.”

SET GOALS AND SUCCEED

“All men seek one goal: Success or happiness is to express yourself completely in service to society.

 

First, have a definite, clear, practical idea- a goal, an objective.

 

Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends-wisdom, money, materials and methods.

 

Third, adjust all your means to that end.”
