Five year plan
THE BIG GOAL SETTING POST
Okay, because my friend Bryan Cohen over at his site put up his ten year goals, I decided to do likewise, but only I decided to go with five year goals because I think I can accomplish these things. And I think I will do a five month goal and a five year goal.It’s a good time to do this, yall. Goal-setting is important. How will you ever know that you are going somewhere if you have nothing ahead of you to shoot for?
