: “The key that unlocks energy is „Desire.‟ It‟s also the key to a long and interesting life.
If weexpect to create
any drive, any real force within ourselves, we have to get excited.”
IV. Set Goals
: “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
: “First, have a definite, clear practical ideal: a goal, an object
ive. Second, have the necessary meansto achieve your ends wisdom, money, materials, and methods.
Third, adjust all your means to that end.”
: “People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no
personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project.
