Setting And Achieving Them On Schedule
by Zig Ziglar
Do you ever find yourself confusing activity with accomplishment?
In this book, legendary speaker and author, Zig Ziglar points out you can't hit a target you don't have. He shares the 4 Reasons People Don't Set Goals.
Anyone can be, do, and have more. BUT... "You cannot make it as a wandering generality. You must become a meaningful specific."
Zig guides you through the 9 Steps of Setting Goals. And he encourages you with, "A goal properly set is halfway reached."
Zig shares a quote by Oliver Wendall Holmes, "Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out."
After teaching the steps to setting goals, Zig takes you straight into ACTION! Zig identifies 13 Variables in the Formula to Reach Your Goals. The day by day actions work. "When you take hold of these ideas and follow the procedures, you will accomplish goals."
If you're familiar with Zig, you know you'll get lots of folksy stories and one-liners in this book. And motivation by the wheelbarrow load. What you might be surprised by is the level of practicality. Zig breaks the goal setting and getting processes down to step by step, day by day actions. Whether you are just now experiencing Zig Ziglar for the first time or even if you have followed him for years, this book will be a life-changing revelation.

Some of his politics and outlook on life are extremely dated and I disagreed with them but the fundamental principles of goal setting and motivation and the fear people have of saying yes when you sell to them, those were the three sections of the stuff, just kept me going again and again and again.
