Description

Do you feel stuck?

Like maybe you're busy existing rather than truly living?

Are you merely part of the crowd rather than a unique individual?

Perhaps it's time to change...

Perhaps it's as simple as pursuing your passions.

Lecture 2: Goal Setting: Set Achievable, Incremental & Measurable (AIM) Goals

But how about changing all of that... and I mean for the better ;-)?

This is a course about goal setting but the course goes well beyond that by including a detailed discussion of how to achieve your goals through:

Lecture 3: Motivation - Building Momentum

Lecture 4: Discipline - Directed Momentum

Lecture 5: Persistence - Sustained Momentum

Lecture 6: Rinse and Repeat (goto Lecture 2)

Follow the simple techniques outlined in this course to make significant positive progress toward achieving your goals.

All the best and I'll see you in the classroom,

---Brian

Born in Los Angeles, California, in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.

Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I’ve published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I’ve also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.

My latest endeavor, begun in July of 2014, is to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal is to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. As time permits, I plan to expand my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.

I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my lovely wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.
