If you want to achieve your goals, you'll need to learn to focus and plan. None of the areas of your life will be optimized if you don’t focus.
A great backgrounder by a legendary thinker and philosopher that endorses setting goals.
“Nothing will fill your heart with a greater sense of regret than lying on your deathbed knowing that you did not live your life and do your dreams.” — Robin Sharma
People prefer comfort to change, and as a result, anything that disrupts their routine gets labeled as bad. Yet, more often than not, change is only as good or bad as the response to it. You may not be able to control where the future directs you, but you can defend against it.”, Greg Twemlow, December 2017
Time? Time is our most irreplaceable asset — we cannot buy more of it. We cannot get a second of it back. We can only hope to waste as little as possible. Yet somehow we treat it as most renewable of all resources. If you don’t have a guiding purpose, you’ll be aimless with your time. If you have a true goal, something that is extremely valuable to you, and that you believe to be very important, ONLY THEN can you begin to properly value and use your time. The Goals Playbook© by Greg Twemlow is a way to deal with change and give you the context for thinking about what you want to achieve and how your time is used. It’s designed to help you think about the year ahead, although it can be easily adapted to address short term goals or specific strategic objectives - personal or corporate.

WHY GOALS PLAYBOOK© USES 9 CELLS
In French the word neuf means both nine and new. In German, the words for nine and new are neun and neu, and in Spanish, nueve and nuevo. As you count and reach nine, you know you are about to make a new start. 9 is composed of the all-powerful 3x3. Buddhist tradition holds nine to be the supreme spiritual power, and a celestial number. It is 3x3 being the most auspicious of all the numbers. Completion; fulfillment; attainment; beginning and the end; the whole number; a celestial and angelic number.
