Marty's Musings

  • GOALS AND ACHIEVEMENT

    Goals and Achievement

    An average person with average talent, ambition and education can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear-focused goals. I had a goal at age 5 after listening to a guy on the radio named Arthur Godfrey {Google him} -- I knew what my goal was.

    The establishment of a clear, central purpose or goal in life is surely the starting point. I followed advise given by both my dad and my boyhood idol {Jack Brickhouse} to work hard and get experience in a small town radio station {Orangeburg, South Carolina}. On air and Sales. Which got me an interview in Green Bay with my mentors at TV11: Larry Busse…Howard {the Hat} Trickey and Tom Hutchison.

    Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines. Committing your goals to paper increases the likelihood you will achieve them by 100%.

    Success equals goals…….ALL ELSE IS COMMENTARY. Rewrite your major goals every day. In the present tense, as if they already existed.

    Right now I am following the career of THEO EPSTEIN, President of my Chicago
    Cubs. This team has Goals and their young stars are working to achieve them.

    RIZZO…BRYANT…SOLER and the veterans on this team are learning each week
    how winners WIN…like THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS in hockey DID.

    Winning…projects Winning…Chicago has not seen a CUB WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP since 1908. I predict This group will deliver it. SOON. Read More
