most effective way to have an end goal in mind is by having a personal mission statement. It focuses on “what you want to be and to do, and on the values or principles upon which being and doing are based.” A personal statement will reflect a person’s personality, thus making it unique depending on the individual. You have the vision and the values that will guide you through your life. You have the basic direction from which you set your long- and short-term goals. In conclusion, Steven Covey and Hyrum Smith conveyed their message in a way that is inspiring and easy to understand to many. They both share step by step guidance, stories, and even go on to provide personal examples that really benefit each reader. People who have trouble setting goals or do not know how to do so, will receive a better understanding after following the excerpts from these authors. Taking the opportunity to read these excerpts can be very life changing (Clear,1998). They give the tools and tips to start the basis of planning how to reach your goals. Through out my research I understood that not everyone knows how to get their life together. A piece of literature such as this can really benefit people who may seem lost or unable to reach certain goals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
