“You can’t hit a target you can’t see, so you’ve got to put goals out there, without a goal you’re not going to achieve anything, you’ve got to have a goal”

“In any company in any group, in any division the most important thing you have in any any of those environments, are the people,  so the one thing I have tried to do since I managed one single person is try to help improve them as best I could you know, trying to give them everything I possibly can.  Really trying to help people do better, trying to build out a person, trying to make them their best, try to find out what motivates them to be their best.”

3-Bullet Summary:

  • Every success in your life and career has been accomplished because of the goals you set along the way.

  • Smart goals are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based.
