Goals has been called, A well-articulated guide to identifying and mastering personal goals.~~“For as the material of the carpenter is wood, and that of statuary bronze, so the subject-matter of the art of living is each persons own life.” –MoreGoals has been called, A well-articulated guide to identifying and mastering personal goals.~~“For as the material of the carpenter is wood, and that of statuary bronze, so the subject-matter of the art of living is each persons own life.” – Epictetus.You can achieve your goals every year with sufficient planning by knowing yourself, focusing on your dreams, and giving yourself clearly-defined, achievable, and measurable tasks.

This book will help you dream, will give you resources and tips for reaching all types of goals, will summarize the relevant scientific literature, and will help you learn to motivate yourself.~~Kirkus Reviews says:In her concise, straightforward and encouraging new book, Laser outlines the key—and acronym-ready—steps toward the achievement of any reasonable goal. S.M.A.R.T.E.R., for example, describes the characteristics of a “good task,” one that is likely to be completed: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Tested, Exclusively under your control and Researched.

Also peppered with nuggets of timeless wisdom from the likes of Lao Tzu, the Dalai Lama, Cicero and others, the book blends practical advice with an inspirational energy that will give readers an extra boost of motivation. Unlike the authors of many chirpy, overenthusiastic self-help books, Laser doesn’t shy away from describing the pitfalls of aiming high.

Nor does she deny that there are a thousand more pleasant things to be doing than working diligently toward completing the series of smaller goals that add up to your ultimate aim. As a counter to these temptations, Laser emphasizes that the pleasure of accomplishment and the feeling of mastery one achieves are greater than any temporary distraction. (For good measure, she also offers handy, concrete anti-procrastination tips for when the going gets tough.) Additionally, she suggests examining the practicality of your aims—can you really become a star athlete?—and encourages readers to not only attain their objectives at a personal level, but also tailor the process to business endeavors.
