Research has proven that writing down goals helps you achieve them. But, why does only a small percentage of the population actually take the time to follow through? Keeping in line with Davenport University's vision of “Get where the world is going," ask yourself where you want to be in one, five, 10, or 30 years. If you haven’t thought about it or don’t have a plan, you should. Live life on purpose and take the time now to write down your goals, dreams and create a vision for all five areas of your life: professional, personal, spiritual, physical and financial. This will be a working session where you will walk away with written goals and the steps necessary to achieve them.
