Daniel's tips for setting good goals:

  • Set clear milestones for yourself
  • Set constraints for yourself
  • Set goals that are appropriate to you
  • Set goals that are largely within your control
  • Make sure you set a proper time frame — long enough to manage, yet short enough to drive you
  • A goal is only a goal if you set it for yourself — Make sure you care about your goal
  • Show up every day and do the work. Consistently.
