Be sure to set written goals at the beginning of each year or quarter.  When you commit to written goals and hold yourself accountable to a timeline, studies show that you are much more likely to accomplish what you set out to do.  Writing down your goals for your program helps you to focus on what needs to be done to accomplish those goals, and also allows you to use your time wisely.  Instead of simply fighting fires, you’ll accomplish more when you write down and commit to accomplishing your goals.
