The Mother of All Goals

It seems like everyone is setting goals or talking about goals or dissing goals this week. So, I figured I might as well join them. I sat down over the weekend and put together goals for both 2010 and I also determined what I want to do for the rest of my life. I have plenty of things I want to do before I leave here and when you hit sixty you start giving the concept "rest of my life" some serious thought.

You'll have to wait to hear about those things as I'm still writing them down. I gave myself until this weekend to finish and then I'll share them with you because I want you to help me reach them. More on that later.

I have a friend who just set the mother of all goals. His name is Tim Brownson and you probably already know him or have read about him here. Tim's the kind of guy you'd want in your circle of close friends. He's authentic and cares about people as much as anyone I've ever met.

Here's his goal. He and his co-author John Strelecky of ‘How To Be Rich and Happy' have set a goal of giving away 1,000,000 copies in 2010. It will cost in excess of one million dollars just to print that many books. What's their motive? I'll let you read about it for yourself.

Here's the post where Tim tells the world about their goal. Your mission (and I hope you accept it) is to read the post and then give Tim some ideas of how to accomplish the goal.

And, I would really appreciate it if you could take a few seconds and let me know about some of your goals for 2010 in the comments section. Tell us how we can help you reach them.

  1. Good to hear about your goal list. I heard an expert on life expectancy a couple years ago say that if a couple both live to 60, the odds are that at least one of them will live into the 90s or even 100. At 62, I’m too young to become a couch potato so I too have a list of goals for all major areas of my life. I did it in Microsoft Word using tables so I could put a picture in one box and the description in the box beside it. I periodically review it and minor jot changes and updates down. I’m also working to put ever comment into present tense as if I am already experiencing this goal.

  2. Oh, goodie! 🙂
    Goal #1: Get my business of the ground (launch Web site and consulting services) by mid-March. How you and your readers can help: kick my ass when I’m being self-defeating, and tell me about your business problems – what’s not working in your biz? Fixing problems is my Thing, and I want to help wherever I can. Even if I don’t make money out of it right away. 🙂
    Goal #2: Identify and take advantage of at least two sources of learning about finance. I’ve got the emergency savings fund locked down, but I know zip, doodly, squat about investing beyond CDs and the stock market (and that last one? Not touching it right now). How you and your readers can help: Pass along any good resources you have.
    Goal #3: Get into a routine volunteering at our local animal shelter with my son, just because it’s a good thing to do and we love animals.
    Goal #4: (not original, but) Lose 50 pounds and run a 5K. If I’m going to be quitting the day job, I need to be fit enough to be approved by an insurance company, yes? How you can help: I think this one has to be all me. 🙂
    Bob, let us know what we can do to help you with your goals for the year.

  3. It looks like you’ve got some fantastic goals. Investing is not my expertise but maybe someone else here has some ideas. I’ve always seen index funds outperform the experts.
    I love your animal shelter idea and I’m joining you in the weight loss goal. You’ll see mine up here soon.
    Great job! We’ll look for updates from you.

  4. @John “I did it in Microsoft Word using tables so I could put a picture in one box and the description in the box beside it.” Great idea! Words are so important so I understand your present tense change. And, remember we do them because we choose to and not because we need or have or should do.
