Sometimes the simplest ideas and quotes are the best ones. For example, I’m always looking for new quotes about motivation and goal setting. I just came across one that said, “The most important thing about goals is having one.”
It doesn’t get much simpler than that. But that quote connected with me because taking time to set goals is one of the first steps to getting control of your time and your life. Most people have heard that many times during their life time. Yet the fact remains that most people, including most Christians, do not actively work from a set of goals each day. Instead they do what feels good or what is most convenient at the moment.
How about you? You know you are supposed to set goals. But have you done it? Do you have lifetime goals, yearly goals, monthly or even weekly goals? Remember, the most important thing about goals is having one. Until you do, you’re not ready to redeem the time.
