 “No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more than pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.”

~W Clement Stone

When you think of the goals you have achieved over the years, whether personal or professional, it is likely that you can point to both well crafted planning and enthusiastic if not passionate execution.  In the end, these were goals you truly cared about and were in alignment with your most cherished values.

Look at the goals in front of you.  First, ensure they are meaningful to you – passionately so.  Otherwise, why bother?  Second, utilize your most focused effort to craft an intentional path to get you there.  If both are followed, it is highly likely that your day to day approach will be with gusto and passion.  And then, success is almost guaranteed!
