I added this to my bookshelf some time ago and recently placed it on my nightstand. While I would like to boast and claim all of the ideas posted for you, alas, I can't. Some of them are inspired from others. While I don't always agree with them, experience has taught me that nothing is a 'one size fits all.' So, I glean tidbits and make connections to similar events in my life. My hope is for you to find something that makes sense to you, and use it to move you in the direction you want to be in.
Dave Ellis' Creating Your Future, is a simplistic approach to goal setting. The strategies he suggests are adequate. However, success is determined by a person's desire and discipline. Of course, if someone is new to the idea of moving out of managing life and into a more involved participation, this is a good read.
