When trying to improve any area of your life, you may sometimes find that you have the tendency to try to be “perfect”. Some people hold the belief that if you do not go all out and try to become the best, then it is not worth the time or effort.

Setting goals is very important when you want to become more successful in any area of your life. Yet merely setting a vague goal in your mind without any followup is the surest way to fall short of accomplishing what you want.
