When faced with a series of choices, how do you decide? Do you allow your goals to provide you with a sense of direction?
Well-written, strongly considered goals do not waste your time - they save you valuable decision-making moments by fixing your direction. Faced with a dozen doors, any one of which could be (and would be) fascinating, you choose the door in the direction of your goal.
That's why it's so important to take your time about your goals. To head consistently in the right direction, to make the best choices, let your goals be your guide.
The most powerful goals are nonnegotiable.
The time to negotiate your goals is before you commit to them. Once the commitment is there, act relentlessly on your goal.
