If you want to achieve the things you want and become successful at something, then you must learn how to set goals in life properly. Study this article well, and create your goals based on the principles here!

Reduce unemployment, help the needy, eliminate poverty and world hunger. Those are all noble goals worth pursuing. We have to be careful though as some solutions do more harm than good. Take these warnings from William J. H. Boetcker’s “The Ten Cannots.”
