I must first set goals in order to reach them. The list is the first step in cultivating my ambitions. I pen my pending accomplishments, sorting each goal into one of three categories: immediate, short term and long term. I refer to the immediate list, where my objectives are arranged in the order I plan to complete them on a daily basis. As I achieve each intention, the list is emptied, making room for additional goals from the short term list. Only when I move items from the short term list to the immediate list do I give them my attention. The long term goals are confined to their list until the opportune time to make them a reality. The master achiever does not necessarily have a personal assistant but merely an adorable pad of list paper.
