…but took 247 hours to share publicly. #PROGRESS
My most recent memory of these goals is of me sitting in a grad-level strategic planning class. Side note: I left that graduate program halfway.
After receiving my Bachelor’s degree, I came across SMART goals again.
This time, in the form of Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich (the first personal development book I picked up, put back down, repeat 3x more, then finished after 6 months).
In the words of the OG himself, Hill’s fifth step to “think and grow rich” is —
“Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire,
name the time limit for its acquisition,
state what you intend to give in return for the money,
and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.”
Guess I didn’t need 20 years of school to receive these tools for success.
All I needed was to borrow a book for free.99 to acquire a wealth of wisdom more valuable than my $130,000+ piece of paper laying somewhere in my room.
