Boy name John Goddard sat down at his
kitchen table in Los Angeles and wrote three
words at the top of a yellow pad, “My life
List.” Under that heading he wrote down
127 goals. Since then he has completed 108
of those goals. Some of the goals he listed

Excerpt from Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen.
These are not simple or easy goals. They
include climbing the world’s major
mountains, exploring vast waterways,
running a mile in five minutes, reading the
complete works of Shakespeare and the
entire Encyclopedia Britannica.

   Some say that he had to be wealthy in order to
    accomplish all of his goals, do you agree?
   Do you think that the length of time a person
    holds a dream is in any way related to the
    outcome? Why or Why not?
   What do you think is the main factor in a person
    accomplishing a dream or a goal?
What is the difference
 between a dream
    and a goal?
A dream is a desire for something.
    Whereas a goal is specific,
 measurable, and has a deadline.

          Guidelines for Goals:
  Goals Must be Specific – a specific goal has a
   greater chance of being accomplished.
 Goals must be Measurable – when you can
   measure your progress, you stay on track, and
   experience achievement.
 Goals must be Attainable –
 Goals must be Realistic - your goal is probably
 realistic if you truly believe you can accomplish it.
 Goals must be Timely – a goal should be grounded
   within a time frame. With no time frame there is no
   sense of urgency.

            Use these Guidelines and
           your goals will be SMART!
