Goals For Millionaires

I’m just one millionaire.  I can’t speak for every other millionaire on the planet.  But here’s my take on goal-setting.  Real simple.

First, one goal at a time.  (Chase two rabbits, catch neither.)

Second, rather than pulling it outta your butt, set it based on energy.  As in, what’s gonna give you the most?  Something realistic?  Or grandiose?  Something you can reach in days?  Or years?  And say you don’t hit it – will you feel defeated?  Or that much more motivated?  Urrbody’s different.  So a one-size-fits-all goal-setting guide makes about as much sense as iPhone X’s “swipe up to open.”  (God I miss that home button.)
