    I heard about an example of this recently. Someone
    wrote a master's thesis at an Eastern university in 1953 on
    goal setting. The person writing the thesis found that only
    3% of the students had written lifetime goals. Twenty years
    later, in 1973, someone checked with the surviving members
    of the class of '53 and found that the three percent of
    the students with written goals made more income than all
    the rest of the class put together. This is an example of how
    your brain will organize your behavior to achieve a goal.
    After you've identified what you want, you can then
    gather information about your current situation; your
    present state. By contrasting and comparing your present
    state with your desired state, you can determine what
    abilities and resources you need to achieve your desired
