    Why Set Goals? 5 Reasons to Set Goals and How to Set Them

    If you're new to setting goals, you may be wondering, "Why set goals? What's the point?" I have always loved goals, and, over the course of my lifetime, I've probably (definitely) set too many of them. But I also know that not everyone gets it.

    What Is Poverty and How Should We Respond to It?

    I recently took some time to look through other blogs and see what's being written about giving back (charity, volunteering, etc.), and I realized that most blogs, even personal development blogs, don't touch on this topic.

    How To Turn Long-Term Goals into Short-Term Goals

    Everyone should have long-term goals, but long-term goals are actually accomplished using short-term steps. I find that I am much more likely to accomplish my goals when I turn my long-term goals into short-term goals. I am a firm believer that short-term goals can drastically change your life. All long-term goals are accomplished one day/week/month at a time. That's where short-term goals come in and why they're so important.

    5 Simple Steps for Setting Long-Term Goals

    I love long-term goals! They’re big dreams that seem almost too big, but because they’re long-term they don’t seem quite so intimidating.
