  of what they want out of life. NO GOALS!!

  eventually want to achieve and they can
  see just how to get there.

•   Goals must be realistic – you can’t lose 40 pounds
    in one month

•   Must prioritize – rank in order of importance you,
    can’t accomplish it all at once.

•   Do you have the resources you need to reach your
    goals (money, information, health, energy, skill,
    etc.).

• Write a long list of the goals you think
  would be important and worthwhile for you
  to accomplish. (a dream list)

  themselves the following questions:
  – Does it fit your values?
  – Is it realistic?

            it?
  – Is it what you want?
