You may have heard about the Harvard (or Yale) study that found MBA students who wrote down their goals earned 10 times more than those who did not.
That’s a myth; no such study ever took place. But written goals do make a difference, based on a legitimate study by Gail Matthews at Dominican University.
Study participants with written goals significantly outperformed those who did not. Perhaps even more important, those who made a public commitment and sent weekly progress reports accomplished significantly more than those who simply wrote them down.
