So, you want powerful and IMMEDIATE shortcuts to success?
By the time I'd interviewed 2,500 corporate and institutional leaders, I'd heard most of them, one by one, DIRECTLY attribute their successes to their use of written goals. Specifically,they refer to them every day. Ask John Leonis, CEO of Litton Industries what he attributes his success to, & he tells you not to let a day pass by without a written plan... and then ask the same question of NY Stock Exchange Director Anton, or Zayle Diamond's CEO, Bob DiNicola... & they all answer almost identically! Either you get it from the horse's mouth, or get caught at the wrong end of the horse.
What happens after hundreds of top leaders tell you again & again,
Like most of you, I'd say, "Too much trouble, writing out goals every day... how can it possibly have a direct impact on the quality or quantity of anything in my life?" Yet, I hate to argue with the horse's mouth, for fear of ending up at the other end. I can tell you that there's a 95-5 chance against you personally being smart enough to use the raw, instant power on this page. I refuse to be in that 95%.
How about you?
Human beings do not end up anywhere by accident When you go buy milk, you never get to the store by accident. You have a very specific route in mind, just as you do when you drive a long distance to go somewhere. Whether we arrive somewhere as a result of being blown about by the winds created by OTHER PEOPLE'S DECISIONS, or whether we arrive as a result of our OWN decisions, be certain that you understand that we all end up somewhere. That 'somewhere' is called a destination. Destination means the same thing as destiny. What is your destination at the end of this year, this month? What is your destination for life? What is your destiny?
Either you arrive following your own plan, or you arrive following someone else's plan for you.
Either you have a written plan, or you don't.
Create a direction to move in, & a written plan for doing so,
In fact, this is already true in your own life, right now, isn't it? There has never been an exception to this in history, and it's unlikely that there ever will be an exception to it:
Either you're serving your own goals,
This very page is the place to start.

People who consistently produce more do indeed have certain commonalties. The simple task on this page is one of the most powerful such commonalties you will ever be aware of in this life. I realize that 95% of the people who read this page are truly stupid. The unassailable proof will be found in the next 100 seconds. You see, most of you will read this page and say, "Great stuff!! I'm going to use it myself, just as soon as _______," or, "Yeah, this is great, but__________________."
Those are the stupid ones. EVERYTHING after the 'but' is baloney.
How sad that you really do believe that this applies only to other people, and not the person now reading this, hmm? It's like intelligence; we're all willing to admit that there are people who are smarter than us…it just never happens to be the person we're speaking to.
Of all who read this, only 5 in every 100 will be smart enough to start filling in the blanks above. As always, we will have perfect proof of YOUR intelligence, or stupidity... in the next 100 seconds, won't we, because of Ruby's Ruby #4:
Wisdom is as knowledge does.
Each of us actually becomes wiser every single time we take what we know… and put it to use.
