thx for reading. For me, learning about goals all started with a talk at work. This pretty amazing guy, Tommy Romero, taught a small goals class at work and started off by saying that <1% of people set goals. Then he talked about how 87% of US companies fail in the first 2 years, 50%+ of marriages fail, and a bunch of other daunting facts which helped build the case that maybe we should plan better.

Hope this helps.
