Write Down Your Goals and Stare At Them Every Day

Aaron McHugh

Life can either happen to us or we can purpose to live our life. I find that by writing down my goals I am more purposeful about achieving them. I post them at my desk or laminate them and hang them in the shower. I have to be reminded daily of what I am purposing to do, become or accomplish. I want to direct my life.

As Henry David Thoreau wrote in Walden, “I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life”. The best way to get the marrow is to suck it out.

I made this podcast on how and why to create a Life List. I stare at it everyday and am checking off my progress.
