Eyes On The Prize

I read a nice post about keeping goals in mind on Steve Pavlina's blog today. I know that successful runners (as well as successful people in all walks of life) have used techniques that he outlines in the full post linked above.

Some very successful people advocate writing and re-writing your goals every day. Others say it’s good enough to read them once a day. The basic idea is to keep refreshing your goals in your mind, so you think about them often.

If you don’t employ such a practice, it’s easy to lose sight of your goals. You get caught up in day-to-day activities, and the most important long-term items fall by the wayside. Instead of leading your life, you merely react to whatever comes up.
