In this course you learn proven principles successful people use to accomplish their personal and business life dreams. You will walk away with the knowledge of how to build the life you want starting by accomplishing personal and business goals.

The problem isn’t that we need more time. We are all given 24 hours a day. The problem is how we manage our activities. Dreaming about a better life, job, relationship or income is common to all of us. What is not common is how we go about our day turning imaginations into real accomplishments.

In this course you will learn how highly successful people turn their time into successful accomplishments. It is important to understand that you don’t do “goals”, you simply accomplish goals. What you learn is the process for effective goal setting thinking and how easy it is to do the activities needed to accomplish your life time dreams.

This course is a great reminder that it's important to set specific goals and write them down. Dream big, stay focused and have a time frame to accomplish your goals.I plan to Turbo Charge my goals by using the chart and sharing it with others to see if goals are important, not important, urgent or not urgent and focus on the ones that provide more value to my life. Thanks Stepp for the encouragement, tools and reminder to create goals and set priorities.

Good course with detailed examples of how to both create and achieve goals. Before taking this course, I did not realize just how much you actually can achieve if you come up with specific goals and a plan to achieve them.

Fantastic for an intro course (freshman business class, new hire orientation, etc.), but if you've ever read Stephen Covey or any other similar author, you've heard this information before and could probably skip.

this course barely covers the essentials of how to do this important human resources function. the section on goal setting should be a bit more inclusive of fact-based materials.

This webinar lost my interest a couple of times. I think there were a few items that were repeated more than necessary, and some topics that were not talked about enough.

Clear and easy to digest information. Helps understand how some people get stuff done and others don't. Stepp explains this by incorporating personal experiences.

I liked the SMART objectives guidance. I would recommend revisiting the wording in the final exam since some questions are not clearly communicated.

The course gives a great definition of what goals are. It also gives a road map to accomplish these goals and is specific enough that all can use.
