Years ago, I had the privilege of hearing Meadowlark Lemon speak at a church. He used to the most famous of Harlem Globetrotters. They're an amazing group of athletes.
What Meadowlark taught was to write down your goals.
...and then God answered
"Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness pointing to what's coming.
It aches for the coming - it can hardly wait!
And it doesn't lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It's on its way.
It will come rignt on time."
The Message, Habakkuk 2
It's the time of year to reflect on the 2011, but more importantly to set goals for the 2012 and write them down. It's not that ALL of our goals will always come to pass, but if we write down our goals, there's a chance that some of them will come to pass.
