Validation of setting goals

So this blogging thing is pretty neat. It's cool to be able to write about things that are going on in our lives. It gives a place for people to openly journal about their thoughts and feelings. It gives aspiring writers a place to publicly share their work and hope to gain a following. I really think it is cool. My favorite part of blogging is seeing other people's blogs and checking out who they read. I was looking at the blogroll on my friend Jose's blog. I was proud to know that I had taken up two spaces on there. I came across a blog from a writer named Justin who is a pastor out in the Quad City area. I don't know much about the guy except the fact that his blog has two things I like in a blog: He writes almost every day, and he has interesting stuff to read each day. I was looking through some of his posts and stumbled across a post that talked about setting goals. He gives good reasoning for setting goals. In the post he quotes Emerson "the world makes way for the man who knows where he is going." Through having goals, it helps to set yourself apart from others that are just wandering around. I am not saying that having my list has given me a step above all others that do not have written goals, I am just happy to see Justin put to words the importance of having goals to set a direction of where you want to be.
I am going to add to my daily reads. Thanks Jose!
