“I have just completed JASB’s Improving Performance & Results program with Jerry Siegel. Whatever expectations I had for the program going in, they have been far exceeded by specific gains I have already made. The program covers subjects we all think we understand – communications, goal-setting, teamwork, etc. –, but you quickly learn from the program, how much you don’t know. Then, guided by the curriculum and Jerry, you begin to understand the nuances and what specific actions you must take to be more effective, reach your business and personal goals and gain the life balance we all seek. I have already implemented new policies, procedures and systems based on what I have learned. They and this program are giving me a renewed sense of purpose and achievement. I feel ten times more productive in my 15-year old business and have gained more peace of mind and time to pursue my personal interests and goals.”

The most powerful means for achievement and accomplishment is setting goals. These provide a sense of direction to keep us focused on the most important activities. Since success can be defined as the progressive realization of worthwhile, predetermined personal goals the process is designed to move us from wish or hope to fulfillment. Goals create a magnetic attraction that draws us toward their achievement. Writing the goals forces you to clarify and crystallize your thinking. In other words, we act on the goal and the goal acts on us. Goals save time, help measure progress, produce motivation, stimulate visualization and form a basis for action. Studies show that the difference between those who write their goals and those who just think them is comparable to night and day but most of the population, at best, set day to day goals because goal setting is a skill and was not taught in school. Learning how to write goals that are specific, measureable, attainable, realistic and tangible will make a tremendous difference in every aspect of your life.
