From the Publisher:

If You're Serious About Reaching Your Goals
Foreword: Welcome to your official guide to setting and reaching your goals! Given that you've picked up this book, chances are that you're a goal-oriented person -- someone who seeks to get more out of his or her life. You are, perhaps, proud of some of your accomplishments and enjoying them, but you're not content to rest on you laurels, for long. That's why this book can be so valuable for you. Jeff Davidson approaches the subject of reaching your goals with the same care and comprehension he applied to his previous books in The Complete Idiot's Guide series including The Complete Idiot's Guide to Managing Your Time, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Managing Stress, and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Assertiveness. If you know Jeff as I do, you know that he tackles his subjects with vigor. As both an author and speaker, Jeff does everything with high energy. Engaging in whatever amount of research it takes to find the answers, Jeff approaches his topic areas with almost encyclopedic command. Then, semi-miraculously, he converts all that he's learned into an enjoyable, user friendly plan that the typical professional can easily understand and apply. In essence, Jeff creates systems for personal accomplishment that work well the first time you engage them. So often in my own life and career I've observed others and wondered with so much literature and so many courses available on setting goals, why aren't more people actually achieving what they set out to do? It seems that too many people are moving in the opposite direction. For example, at least in America, personal debt in recent years has reach all time highs. What could be the financial goals of the great masses of individuals who owe more money than ever before in their lives? The divorce rate is at an all time high. What could be the social/family goals of so many millions of people? The average weight of adult men and women has been steadily increasing for more than 30 years. What could be the physical goals of! people whose waistlines are expanding? Does anyone consciously set out to continually be in debt, have their marriage or primary relationship end in ruin, or become too heavy to fit in any of their clothes? Yet, that is what seems to be occurring for many people today. That's why The Complete Idiot's Guide to Reaching Your Goals can be such a valuable guide for you. If you seek to gain or regain control of your life in critical areas such as advancing in your career, maintaining spiritual balance, or having time for your loved ones and friends, keep reading. Jeff Davidson charts a course for you that you'll want to follow. He's assembled this book so that you don't get bogged down with unnecessary details or end up attempting to bite off more than you can chew, and hence not meet with the success you deserve. Rather, he focuses on one-at-a-time, proven, practical approaches to enable you to attain the rewards of life and career that you so richly deserve. Jeff draws on time honored principles as well as late breaking developments as to what works and what doesn't when setting goals. In my own business, I speak to groups about the fundamental changes facing us as we enter this age of technoshift. Never before have you been faced with so many fundamental changes in how you work, play and live, brought about by new communication technology. The onslaught of new information is overwhelming. Losing focus has never been easier! As Jeff has pointed out in his previous books, it would be fair to say that the current generation of career professionals is easily the most distracted in history. In that regard, reaching your goals becomes a challenge of a higher order. Fear not, because for you have in your hands the wisdom, the insights, and the plan that will help you to get from point A to point B, in virtually every arena of your life. Before you actually begin reading, I suggest you get a felt-tip pen or highlighter. To obtain the most from this text you'll want to mark passages of impor! tance to you, as you encounter them. Chances are if you don't highlight a section of text as you read it, you never will. Also, pick an area of your life or career where you are particularly motivated to effect a change for the better. Then, singularly pour your energies into that area as opposed to tackling too much at once. Thus, I'd rather see you achieve an early win a critical area as the first order of business, before attempting more. I'm excited for you and for the journey you're about to undertake. If you're serious about reaching your goals, you're about to embark on a personal new era. May the most for which you strive be the least that you attain!
