Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Written Goals Give You Control

Written Goals Give You Control


Motivational Power Quote


Written Goals Give You Control

“Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.”

 Brian Tracy, author, consultant, speaker         


As I see it . . . . . . .


Written goals give you control


Clearly written goals create a road map for your career along with mile markers of accountability.


You can chart your progress, at any given time. You can also identify the roads blocks that are standing between you and success.


With written goals you have the ability to adjust your course when it’s to your best interest in reaching your objectives. Also written goals give you control over your success journey and the pace of your journey to reach your destination.


Written goals give you a sense of purpose and a target to aim for.


A person with written goals will have far more success in achieving their goals than a person with a wish list of goals.


Written goals give you control over the direction that your life takes. Your goals will have a positive influence on your decisions making and the level of success that you achieve.

Written and charted. . 

A daily accountability chart for each of my goals have helped me tremendously

Very hard to control the direction of change unless you know the direction you want to go! Enjoy your day!

I used to write my goals, differently than today. For the last 10 years are all about the number of referrals I plan on giving out during the year. I break them down by catagory, the number that will go to Realtors, Financial Planners, Insurance Agents, Home inspectors and so on.

With these goals are in place, I know how that will relate to business and revenues for me.

Lou, Written goals come to fruition and can also be adjusted as time goes on. They work because you work to get them done!
