Setting Goals

by Stanley Bronstein on August 3, 2010

Meditation for Tuesday – August 3, 2010

Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.

Refer back to your list of “Things I Don’t Have That I Want” that you were to create over the last 2 days.

If you haven’t already created such a list, don’t worry.  Simply take 10 minutes and write out a list of “Things I Don’t Have That I Want.”

Next to each item on the list, write how long you estimate it would take to obtain, achieve or accomplish this goal.  Once done, you will be ready to move on.

We will now create a list labeled, “Short-Term Goals”.  These are goals that can be obtained, achieved or accomplished in the next year.

The next list is labeled “Medium-Term Goals”, and is for medium-term goals that can be accomplished in the next three years.

The third list is labeled “Long-Term Goals”. It is for  long-term goals that will take more than three years to obtain, achieve or accomplish.

Take a few minutes to place the items from your “do not have” list into the appropriate list of the 3 discussed above.

We will begin working with these lists in my next post.


As you meditate upon this thought, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What are my short-term goals?
  • What are my medium-term goals?
  • What are my long-term goals?

Until next time, take care. Stanley F. Bronstein
