    Can anyone recommend a good book on goal setting? Also who has read Anthony Robbins - useful or not?

    Cheers Guys

    Here's a good one

    Take a look at The Power of Focus - an excellent resource for setting long-term (40-50K) goals that line up with your lower altitudes.

          Anthony Robbins is (in my eyes) an inspirational guru of immence proportions.........and thats it!!. Nothing more.

          Wallowing in self imporance, like most high ranking go-getters, leaves much to be desired.

          What did Da Vinci do ?

          Just did!!

          (NIKE 'do it')

          Robbins is good for one thing - people with no 'get up and go' . PERIOD

            Im still struggling with higher altitude goals. Its confusing to me - projects are goals are they not? Then we have higher level goals. Can projects be the same as goals?

            Also, all the goal setting gurus tracy etc. suggest focusing like a laser on one major goal yet with GTD we end up with 70-100 goals at one time!

              projects as goals...


              it's about the projected length of the outcome. Projects according to GTD are multi-step, but still with a rather short timespan (from a few days to three months?).

              Goals would be longer, larger and contain many projects inside them ( timespan would be anything from three months to a lifetime depending on your "altitude")

              It's all explained in the GTD book, so you may want to re-read it. Semantics are sometimes a bit confusing. Objective, goal and desired outcome mean the same thing - something you desire and are willing to labor to get it. Someone once called goals as dreams with a plan and a timetable. A project is a useful abstract concept in planning stages.

              So even Tracy's single goal would contain hundreds of little projects...

                Yes, but in Ready for Anything David says that 'land on mars' is a project i.e. it doesnt matter how long it takes its still a project
