Scout Tip
Begin with the End
For this week's Scoutmaster Minute I want to share my thoughts on achieving your goals.

The old adage, "Failing to plan is planning to fail", is so true.  If you don't have a goal, then how can you know if you are heading toward it or away from it?

I recommend, envisioning what you want in the future so you can work and plan towards it.  Then with a plan and a goal clearing in your vision, you will know as you make decisions if you are moving toward the goal or away from the goal.

The goal can be simple or grand, it makes no difference.  For example, one of my goals is to be a man of character.  With that goal, my plan is to make decisions inline with that goal.  Each day I am given opportunities to be a man of character or not.  Each decision either moves me closer to the goal or further from it.

1) Envision your Goal.
2) Make a Plan of Action.
3) Make Decisions that Agree with your Plan.
4) Achieve Greatness.

You can do it, you are a Troop 301 Scout!!!
