Why I like goals quotes!

I was influenced by goals quotes like this in my early twenties when the Karate club I trained at had a professional display board featuring different quotes of the day.  I looked forward to reading these short positive messages every time I drove by.  They got me thinking more positively and reflectively about life and what was possible for me.  

As a department t manager, I have a team stand-up meeting with approximately 15 people.  The first thing we talk about at our meeting is in reading aloud the quote of the day.  Our department assistant, one off my staff or myself will write the quote of the day on our whiteboard, for all to see as they walk by.  We've had some deep insightful quotes and some quotes that make us contemplate life. 

Make it a goal to incorporate daily goals quotes into your life!
