What Are Your Goals?

  • First Engineering Job?
  • New Career Path?
  • Engineering License or Certificate?
  • Promotion?
  • Money?
  • Unsure?

Did You Know?

A Harvard Business study revealed remarkable statistics relating to goal setting and success.

  • 83% of the population does not have goals.
  • 14% have a plan in mind, but are unwritten goals.
  • 3% to 5% of people have goals written down.
  • 92% of New Years goals fail by January 15th.

Goals require work. Hard work. You cannot achieve a goal, no matter how hard you want it, without preparation and a considerable effort. Success doesn’t happen by itself. It is the result of a consistent and driven action to achieve something great. Sharing your goals with a close ‘confide’ is proven to increase the chances of you achieving your goal. By working together I can help break down that dream into manageable pieces and turn it into a reality.
