It’s another great day!
A goal is a dream with a time frame attached to it. In these uncertain times, we must concentrate on our goals: how to set them and how to reach them. Then we have a greater opportunity to not only survive, but also thrive in this economy!
The international success trainer, Brian Tracy says, “The reason people don’t set goals is because they don’t understand the incredible power that goals can have on their success. Alternatively, they don’t know how to set effective goals.”
Goals are our working tools to help us achieve our dreams.

A Valentine’s Day Gift From Willie Jolley!
Please enjoy this special article Willie wrote in honor of St. Valentine’s Day.
Don’t Let The Romance Die!
As we celebrate this season of love and romance, it is important to keep in mind that we should not just be thinking of romance around Valentine’s Day! We should be thinking about romance all year long!
To have a healthy and vibrant relationship, the romance should be ongoing. And in order to keep the fires burning, you must be willing to make an “ongoing commitment” to never-ending romance!
I have been married for over 20 years to Dee; and learned early on to commit to never letting the romance die. When I first got married, I had a conversation with an older gentleman, who had been married for over 50 years. He and his wife acted like newlyweds. So I asked him what was the secret to the excitement that he and his wife shared. He said, “Love is not just an emotion, it is decision.”
He went into great detail on how to keep those love fires burning. I even wrote about it in the Love Section of my first book, “It Only Takes A Minute To Change Your Life!” Suffice it to say, he taught me that a “happy wife creates a happy life!” He helped me realize that it takes a commitment to romance your mate daily! Not just on Valentine’s Day or birthdays, but everyday!
Take time out everyday to tell your mate that you love them. Make time for a “date night” once a week. Dee and I have been having a date night every week for our 20+ years. When our kids were little, and we could not afford any date nights out, we would have date time in front of the television, with our bedroom door open! We’d eat popcorn, watch television and talk! It was our time alone, and has continued throughout the years.
We must do the same with our clients. We must work hard to keep that business romance from dying. Unfortunately many people work hard to get the business, but stop courting their clients once they get their business. . My office manager recently changed office suppliers. After she made the change, the old supplier sent an email asking, “What did we do to lose your business?” My office manager simply replied, “You didn’t do anything…and that was the problem! You worked to get our business and then we rarely heard from you.”
Statistics show that it costs twice as much to get new clients as it does to keep old ones. And we all know that in love relationships, it’s “cheaper to keep them!”
So work at keeping the romance alive…at home and in business! Keep courting them and letting them know you appreciate them. The rewards are endless!
