All Things
Achievement

Goal setting is one of the fundamentals of a great life.  It just may be the most important thing in a modern society.  Not only does it separate the wheat from the chafe, it moves humanity along.  Indeed, perhaps it’s the only thing that does.  Ask yourself: do you have goals?

What Is Achievement?

Setting goals is the mark of the would-be elite performer.  When you understand the power of goal-setting, life changes.  At least, you realize that you have the power to change your life.  Not everyone has what it takes.  But those that do enrich our world.

Why Achievement?

Goal setting makes the world a better place—for those setting the goals and those around them.  Without it, we’re subject to the inertia of life.

I don’t claim to be an expert on anything I write about.

Hell, I hardly claim to be an expert on myself.  😂😂😂

These breakdowns are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  Unlike most others on this site though, this goal setting page might actually be useful to the outside observer.

No promises.  You can tell me.

Mapping Meaning

Those too impatient to “find” their life’s purpose can create it.  Goal setting helps the courageous become winners.

Chemical Happiness

Your brain is wired to set objective and reach them.  Completing even small-scale goals provides a natural “high.”

Pull Power

The right goals are hard not to chase.  Done right, goal setting has the power to unlock human potential.

Mark of the Maker

Doers need goals.  History’s greatest men and women weren’t spectators.  They were known by their deeds.

There’s a lot that goes into choosing the right goals for you.  Here’s a quick look at what the goal-setting journey has been like for me.

Learn with Me

I’m pretty good at this one.

I’ve been setting epic goals for nearly a decade now.

I don’t achieve all of them.  But I certainly accomplish more in life because I have them.  Without consistent goal setting, there’s no way I’d be the man I am now.

I’ve done goal setting exercises of all types.  They are one of the most important tools I use to improve my life.

Over the years, my process has evolved.

Nowadays, I have a solid list of life goals that I revisit periodically.  I break those down into yearly, quarterly, monthly, and weekly goals.  I use a variety of different frameworks and love to try new goal setting methods.

My goals are how I make my life, as seen on This Site.

Piecing Together the Achievement Puzzle

Over the last few years, I’ve learned a lot from Gary Vee.  He touches on a lot of different things.  I think many of his messages help make the world a better place.  Here are the topics he teaches me the most about.

Learn With Me

I may only do a few things well…

But learn is definitely one of those things.

Obviously, there’s still a lot more about money I don’t know.  In fact, I’m sure there are still many things about money I don’t even know that I don’t know.

Luckily, I am a nerd.  🤓

Autodidact is my favorite word.

 

 

My Progress So Far

40More than anyone else:

Gary is the reason I started creating hero profiles.

Now that I’ve started, I see that his profile may be less useful than my other heroes to other people.  But his will likely always remain the most important to me.

I fucking love this dude.  He changed my life.

More accurately, he teamed up with Nahko to save my life.

I’m not quite sure when I found him.  I featured him all the way back in one of my first posts for Greensboro SEO Pro.

How to Become a Morning Person [Life-Changing Habit #1]

Becoming a "morning person" has changed my life. Only time will tell, but it could go down as a top five factor to my future success. Learning how to wake up early wasn't easy. Until the second half of 2018, I've been a notoriously late sleeper. It started as a kid: I...
