Beyond the To-Do list: Goals Book Project

photoPlans are moving forward for this exciting little project of mine.

Myself and a select group of individuals will be reading through Erik Fisher and Jim Woods’ book “Beyond the To-Do List: Goals” together.

While we read it, we will also be a part of a private message board to discuss the book, and help each other with our goals. Also, every week (or every two weeks) we will be having a teleconference call via GoToMeeting to really take things up a notch.

The best part is that Erik will be reading the book with us and participating in the discussions.

If you’d like to be a part of this, first buy the book, then drop me a line.  As I’m typing this there are already around 20 people in the group, so move fast if you’d like to secure a spot!

So that’s it for today!  Have a great week and remember: Life is a project.  You are the manager.
