In order to build a strong framework for your blueprint for living, you’ll need to learn a thing or two about writing goals. Think of goals as the framework for your dream house or your dream life.
You’ve decided to make changes in your life. You’ve spent some time reading, planning, and creating a blueprint for your new life. Now it’s time for the framing. Think of framing as your goals.
Writing goals will give you direction.
If you don’t know where you’re going, you probably won’t end up where you want to be. If goals are not written, they are simply wishes.

Author unknown, “Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.”

Start Framing

You’ll carefully follow your blueprint and add the 2x6 studs and the framing boards. That’s how you build a house. In real life, this would be learning how to write and achieve goals.
One of the most important considerations in constructing a house, is the framing. The whole structure will depend on the frame for structural integrity. Like wise, one of the most important considerations in designing a new life plan is written goals.

Write one goal for each of the life areas just like you’d frame each room of your house.

Goal areas include:
• Health and Fitness
• Recreation
• Spiritual
• Educational
• Social

Consider each goal a room in your blueprint. To frame it, you’ll need to write goals that are W A M W R:
• W written - write a definite goal.

• A attainable - do you believe you can attain it?

• M measurable - is it measurable in dollars, weight, time?

• W workable - do you have the skills to do it?

• R rewardable - what will you give yourself when you reach the goal?

For practice, write a goal for each of the eight areas.

Make them one week goals. Check them against the W A M W R check list. Work toward the goals this week and at the end of the week you should give yourself eight nice rewards.
Whenever you reach a goal, there must be a tangible reward. Every written goal must have a reward. Losing five pounds might call for a fudge sundae. I am kidding.

You’ll see how easy it is to write and reach your goals with this process.
It’s like passing your apprentice framer phase; after that you are a framer.
When you see how easy it is to write and achieve short term goals you can start writing long term and short term goals.

This is how you build the framework for your life blueprint. Get it right.

You may ask, “Why do I need to write my goals?”

Ask any successful person if they have written goals and you’ll get a resounding, “Yes.”
Ask any success guru what’s the first step to success and they will tell you it is a setting and writing goals.
There is great power generated when you commit your goals to paper. You send a message to the Universal Mind; a thought so powerful it must manifest in your life. Once a goal is committed to paper it is no longer a vapor, it has become real.
Trust those who’ve succeeded. They all set and wrote goals first.

Goals are absolutely necessary to:

Building a life Blueprint
Writing a Business plan
Success in sales
Success in living
Finding out what you want out of life.

People who write goals find they have direction and purpose in life. Try it. You’re going to love it. I guarantee it.

Henry Ford said, “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”

Once you’ve experienced the high of attaining your goals, you’ll never go back to living without them.


A good time to consider your goals is during your morning meditation and reading.
Consider this, you’re framing the bathroom and you discover the bathtub wall is too short.
So you go to the blueprint and change the measurements.
Then you frame in the correct dimensions.
So it is with goals; they will need revisions. Revision is not a dirty word.

Goals must constantly be reevaluated.
At the end of each day look at what you accomplished and make a plan for tomorrow.
You should constantly look at your goals, revise and rewrite them.
They should never become stagnate.
Keep them alive, vital and working by constant examination and revision.

Anthony Robbins, “How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed too?”
