Email #2: A Goal Properly Set
This email is part of a series of practical advice on how to deal with the stress of being arrested. This is not specifically related to your case.
One of the only positive things about getting arrested is that it can encourage you to take a closer look at your life goals. Have you done that yet? You've probably already heard me say this, but now is not the time to stop or delay your plans, it is time to accelerate them! And an important part of making goals is writing them down.
By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands... your own. - Mark Victor Hansen
Here is a simple questionnaire about your plans and the steps you are about to take. I'd like to know what you are working towards! Click here to let me know. Use the phrase "I will..." when describing the goal. Think big! Then think about the next small steps.
The thing about goals is that living without them is a lot more fun, in the short term. It seems to me, though, that the people who get things done, who lead, who grow, and who make an impact... those people have goals - Seth Godin
Is this mandatory? Do you have to write these down? Of course not. But, it is my legal advice that you do it. :-) It is always possible that the goals you set and accomplish will help on the case (because I will share your successes with the prosecutor). Here is a video about our philosophy on what you should do while your case is pending.
I'm going to ask you to fill out this questionnaire again in a couple of months. I'm looking forward to hearing about your progress!
As always, if you have any questions about your case, please call or email us!
