THINK:SETTING GOALS IS THE KEY TO A COMPELLING FUTUREHaving goals is the fundamental key to success. Goals let us create our future in advance of it actually happening. Setting goals help us grow and expand, pushing ourselves to transform in ways that, just maybe, we never imagined.

For example, “get better at money” is not a measurable goal; it’s unclear what “better” means here.
