1. Success is Goals The people who become successful are the people who set goals. The optimal planning periods appear to be three months and three years. What job will you be doing three years from now? How much money will you be earning? Where will you be working? What are the skills you will require to achieve your career goals? Will you need to learn about business strategy, marketing, finance, pension funds, people skills? Finally, why do you want to achieve these career goals? What is it you really want in life? Is it a beautiful home, car, better health, happy family, worthy goals, a terrific feeling of well being?
