    Writing down this list of mistakes when setting goals really helps me define just exactly which mistakes I am making.  It gives me something concrete to look at and examine.
    I want to pursue my goals, while at the same time, point the way for my friends to come along with me on this great adventure! 
    Thank you, Ken.  Do you realize just exactly how much you have impacted lives?  I can imagine how that must feel for you.  I just wonder if you know how it feels on the receiving end.  You are providing hope.  What a huge gift to give.
