You Don’t Need a Degree to be Successful

I will

Did you know that some of today’s most famous entrepreneurs became successful without a college degree? People like Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg never completed college.

I am not suggesting that going to college isn’t important. But I also believe we should consider all the options available to us.

Today on my blog and podcast, I’ll show you a simple exercise to help you evaluate endeavors that didn’t succeed, and to clarify and prioritize the next steps you want to take.

A Goal-Setting Checklist

Once you have used goal setting you will never live without it. It simply becomes a way of life. By writing down the steps in a formalized fashion in the beginning, it soon becomes second nature.

Here are some things to remember:

Does your goal adequately reflect what you want to accomplish?

For example, you might want to become financially secure and choose an occupation that has the best potential for making lots of money. However, if your goal doesn’t reflect who you are, your personality, your talents, passions, etc., your goal will soon create high stress and great dissatisfaction. If you like working with people but choose to be an accountant who works with books, the conflict will soon deplete you.

Sometimes we have to let go of an old reality to create a new one.
