The Core Curriculum Of A Wonderful Life
An acquaintance of mine once lamented that she was utterly frustrated with her lack of progress toward her dreams, given her age. According to her outlook, if you hadn't made it by then, you weren't anywhere near as likely to do so afterwards.

Reach Your Goals - Review and Refine
Periodically re-check and refine (or redefine) your goals
It's no use struggling to meet a goal that, by the time you get there, no longer fits in with your life. During obvious stopping spots along the way (say, every 10 lbs on a weight loss goal, or when you've saved enough for a down payment as part of a house-ownership goal), take a few days to sit back and really feel how you are reacting to reaching this milestone.
Reach Your Goals - Visualize Success
Visualize success, and what you'll do to reward yourself
A goal envisioned is a goal half completed. Most people find it difficult if not impossible to expend large amounts of energy on something that they can't "see" as existing in their reality.
Reach Your Goals - Measure Twice, Cut Once
Measure twice, cut once
Just as in carpentry, making sure that your decisions are based on sound data is essential to reaching your goals. Ensure that you know precisely what is going to be required to make your dreams come true, and that you meet these criteria and are capable of the sustained effort necessary.
Reach Your Goals - Progressive Goal Party
Hold a "progressive" goal party
If you have a group of friends with the same goal who live in close proximity (or who can meet up comfortably in a third-party establishment), get them involved in a progressive goal party. The idea is to meet at one location, where you all complete one part of the goal as a group, then move on to the next (carpool or walk) to complete the second part, and so on.
Reach Your Goals - Delegate Your Life
Delegate your life
If you're having problems finding the time or energy to handle your everyday activities, let alone getting to your goal, "hire out" the other stuff in your life to clear up mental and physical energy for the sole purpose of reaching your goal. Assign distractions that don't require your personal involvement - like dinner-making, house-cleaning, errand-running and phone-and-door duty - to other family members.
Reach Your Goals - Get Professional Help
Get professional help
There's no rule that says you have to do it all yourself. There is a whole world of people outside your door (and maybe even in your house) who are capable of tackling parts of your project that you can't handle, or don't have the time for.
Reach Your Goals - Bring In The Big Guns
Bring in the big guns
People love to be needed, and love to be thought of as a leader in their field even more. If you could use a hand reaching a goal, ask around until you find someone in the field who seems universally respected and on the ball.
Reach Your Goals - Creative Multi-Tasking
Multi-task goal-completion work with everyday, "have to" activities
If you need to lose weight, don't take the dogs for a leisurely stroll - jog or power-walk them. Use the time you spend waiting at various appointments for catching up on trade reading or creating the materials/writing the outline for your next stunning teleclass or seminar.
Reach Your Goals - Aim For The Impossible
Choose "impossible" goals
When faced with a hard-to-reach goal, your best strategy may be to shoot even higher. Like aiming a punch or a kick "beyond" the target, aiming impossibly high will at least get you where you need to be, and will quite likely create a vacuum-like momentum that will pull you far beyond what you thought possible.
Reach Your Goals - Temp Your Way To The Top
Temp your way to the top
Want to take the test for a software certification, but feeling a bit rusty? Need to brush up on your mechanic skills before tackling the full rebuild of that gas-and-oil-guzzler staining up your driveway? Or perhaps you need to re-enter the networking circle of your chosen work-from-home career after a few years out of the loop, but don't want to get trapped into the office-bound aspects of it. One visit to your local temporary staffing agency could have you on your way to meeting your goals and getting paid for it at the same time.
Reach Your Goals - Get Your Act Together
Get your act together
Make sure that you have all the equipment, tools, resources, clothes and attitude you need to successfully reach your goal - before you start in on it. Nothing spoils a motivated mood faster than having to drop everything to find a pair of well-hidden tin snips, or getting to the gym and discovering that the skin-tight leotard you borrowed at the last minute from your sister doesn't meet their more conservative shorts-and-shirts-only dress code.
Reach Your Goals - Start A Round Robin
Start a "round robin" goal letter with others who need a little motivation and accountability
If you know a few people who are working on projects of their own (and lets face it, how many people do you know who aren't) ask them if they'd be interested in starting a "success round robin." Participants do not have to be aiming for the same goals for this to work.
Reach Your Goals - The Fine Art Of The End Run
Perfect the fine art of the end run
From time to time, the path to your goals is going to run smack into someone else's version of reality, which they may not be happy to have you "play through." In these cases, shift your direction of movement off-road and work around, rather than through, the problem.
