Can achieving goals improve the quality of your life?

I received a note this week from a college friend who completed an item on her life list and ran a marathon. As a wife, mother and professional she certainly had a full schedule but she made the time to dedicate to this personal achievement. To her surprise and joy she ran the marathon in under 4 hours. An amazing achievement for her first marathon! Check out her story Running a Marathon

These are the kinds of experiences I love hearing about and sharing with others. It was a significant goal and the thing I love about it was how her family became such a big part of the experience. Think of the lessons she has taught her kids about setting a goal and achieving it. Immediately after the marathon she signed up to complete an Olympic triathlon. She is benefiting from the power of momentum and it is enriching her life in many ways by achieving these personal goals.

So is there a goal that you can set for yourself today that would have an immediate and positive impact on the quality of your life?
