How do you Find your Crescendo?

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
–Lewis Carol, Alice in Wonderland

Goal Setting Study:

There is an urban myth about a Harvard study, debunked on line and by Fast Magazine, that the top 3% of Harvard MBA’s who wrote down their goals achieved the greatest wealth. However, Dominican University set out to test the same thesis. http://www.dominican.edu/dominicannews/study-backs-up-strategies-for-achieving-goals

Although the test was only over a four-week period, Group 5, that group that was asked to write down their goals and continuously monitors them, achieved significantly more than all other groups.

Also, the mean achievement score for Groups 2-5 (with written goals) was significantly higher than Group 1. (which wrote no goals down)

It’s Really Important to set Goals and Monitor Them!

So far we’ve discussed why live life in crescendo, and how goals can help you get there.

Next, I will be discussing how do you find your crescendo?  Does this change your path in life or augment the one you’re on?  Stay tuned.
