Napoleon Hill Got Me Thinking (Again)

I recently tweeted one of Napoleon Hill’s best quotes “A goal is a dream with a deadline.”  As I was typing, I realized that simply tweeting this quote did not do justice to one its the very important points. During our quarterly planning GrowthCLUB workshop we invest a considerable amount of time discussing the definition of a goal.  Actually we discuss what makes SMARTER goals.
  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time Sensitive
  • Extending capabilities
  • Rewarding
We can and do have extended, in depth discussions about this subject, there are many, many layers to it.  Yet, in a simple eight word sentence Napoleon Hill captures the essential message. So I ask you, what are you doing to turn your dreams into goals, into plans, into action?
