“Why can’t your dreams have deadlines? What if you took your goals as seriously as, let’s say, a project at work or a deliverable to a client? Aren’t your aspirations just as important, if not more so? Then start by giving your goal a deadline. Commit to it. Commit to yourself. You deserve it."
- Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, pages 75-76
It is only a dream until you write it down; then it becomes a goal.
- Emmitt Smith from his NFL Hall of Fame Induction Speech, August 7, 2010
