What are the one or two goals that keep reappearing where you have a deep driving desire to accomplish? In the early 90’s, right after the birth of my second child, I was visiting my parents. In their guest room was an older copy of a Reader’s Digest monthly magazine. Thumbing through it, I stumbled upon an article about what can happen in your life when you identify your top 25 goals. Over the next several days, I worked on figuring out those top 25 goals at the time. I recall several of them and one was that I wanted to live on a lake. Relatives we were very close with lived on a lake and I had many fond memories of our times there. I wanted to create the same thing for my children.

Several months later, the drive to achieve that goal kept reappearing. And even though my children were still both under three, this feeling that I wanted to live on a lake persisted. Before year end, we had found the perfect slice of heaven to call our own. Within two years, our home was complete and we were living on the lake. Besides getting my college degree, it was the most arduous goal I had committed to yet in my life. I remember the sense of accomplishment and how it helped me realize that yes, I can achieve what I set my mind to, no matter what the external conditions are in my life. In those two years, I not only built my house – I also created the foundation of perseverance I needed to build Cheetah Learning.
