What one change can you make to dramatically increase your success? Learn how to set specific goals when goal setting and use specific goals in all your business planning. Goals need to be specific if we have any chance of accomplishing them. Setting specific goals when we're goal setting sets us up for success rather than failure. Before you can set specific goals designed to increase your business success, you need to know what you mean by success /http://sbinfocanada.about.com/cs/successprogram/a/week2.htm/.
