I think it's important to have a written set of clear goals. The act of writing them down and reviewing goals has a power that I can't quite explain. For some reason the universe seems to reward those people who have direction, purpose and clearly stated goals. I'm not smart enough to know why it works... only that it does work. And so I've given up figuring out why and I simply work the system that the universe seems to have setup.
Please note, these goals are from the volunteer community that helps with day-to-day activities on the RPG Geek. They do not represent (but are not in conflict with) specific goals from BoardGameGeek, LLC (i.e. Aldie, et al).
Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to. Alice: I don't much care where. The Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
