Setting and Achieving Goals

I found this paragraph stumbling the web and it struck me as a very clear example of why setting goals is beneficial.
Howard Hill won 287 times out of 287 archery contests in his life. He could split an arrow at 50 feet. You could shoot better than him in a matter of a few hours ... if he was blindfolded and spun around. How can you hit a target you can’t see? Even better, how can you hit a target you don’t have? You must make targets in your life. The problem in life is not the lack of time, but the lack of focus or direction. quoted from blog
The full article is at and is a summary of Zig Ziglars philosophy on setting goals.
