Happy new year! Personally I don’t believe in books or courses to set goals.

Just take a paper and pen. Then write what you want to accomplish. Then do it.

In my opinion, courses on setting goals is an action-fake.

The top three books I read in the last year:
Unscripted
10x
The One Thing

If you haven't read them, I suggest you do. Those last two are very pertinent to goals.

One that has served me well over the years is Do Hard Things that offers you not only the ability to conceptualize the direction you want to head in but also gives you the encouragement to aim higher.

Honestly, just make a progress thread and ask for feedback.

People here (like me) are dicks and will give you quick feedback on whether your goals are unrealistic, too easy, or if you're thinking about things the wrong way.

In my opinion, courses on setting goals is an action-fake.

Also this.

You can read a book or two, but after that setting goals and *ACCOMPLISHING* them is on you.

Best of luck.


Also, I read this book. This and https://www.amazon.com/dp/1458794350/?tag=tff-amazonparser-20 is probably all you need.

The best book you can read after The Bible in life is Psycocybernetics:Updated and Revised by Maxwell Maltz and Dan S Kennedy. It is valuable for goal setting and especially for living life.

I don't have an issue with "action fake" or whatever you're calling that bro.

Entrepreneurs and business leaders plan. If you're not doing that process than you're missing out.

Thanks I'll check out Eat That Frog. I'm a Brian Tracy fan so that's cool.

I don't have an issue w/ accomplishing. Just like to get new ideas on planning and goal setting etc.

Actually I just realized I probably should have said I was looking for a book on strategic planning and not necessarily goal setting.
If your strategic plan requires vison, mission, objectives, values and stuff like that then I recommend you Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity AND its companion book Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and the Business of Life. The second book explains the system using as an example a person who owns a flower store.

Well that’s why you got that response from me— because of the ambiguity in your original post.

But I digress. Here’s something you can use that’s effective (app-based):
Goal Setting with Brian Tracy by Success Wizard, Inc. Goal Setting with Brian Tracy on the App Store

The app helps you gain clarity, focus,
and helps build an effective action plan.

Hope this helps.

P.S. My apologies if my OP read rude.

I'm thinking of picking up a the daily stoic journal, looks pretty interesting. Each day you write a morning and evening reflection for the question of the day and includes weekly passages.
