Everyone knows the importance of setting goals, but achieving them is a different thing for most people. One can create a goal today and forget about it the next month or give up on it, especially when it gets tricky. If this seems to be the case with you, you need not fret. There are practical ways to go about it so you can see your goals come to fruition! 

In this podcast episode, I talk with one of our highly-esteemed guests in the show, Al Levi. Al shares practical ways to set goals, whether personal or in business, and achieve them. These ways are the very ones he uses himself, so you can be sure that they work. We discuss the importance of accountability and beliefs. We also talk about why you need your goals to be clear and why meetings make up a vital part of achieving your goals.
