    I remember writing a list of goals before... I think it was written on the 31st December 2010 (New Year's Eve). And surprisingly I've achieved most of them! I even wrote weird goals like "Improve my panic disorder condition" and it was achieved.

    My brother also used to write all these goal settings too and recently he found his old notebook and saw the list of goals. Freakishly, it was nearly all achieved (go for sky-diving, get a job promotion to a commodities broker, .etc).

    It seems that once you set your goals, your brain will subconsciously follow and try to achieve them.

    I fucking recommend to do it too!

    Congrats, keep at it! I really need to start working more on IM and other things in life, so thanks for this inspirational post.

    PS for you rednecks out there, setting a goal like "I wanna bang Jessica Alba tonight" is probably not going to work :p

    Hey BlackSeng bro, I noticed that you come from a certain asian country that has developed a paper chase and rat race society. I dont know how old you are and whether you have a day job, but you seem fairly successful in IM and do you think you can make it with just IM as your source of income. How do you start IM and any more advice?:D

    What I've noticed is that this only works if you forget that you've written your goals. Then once you've achieved them you remember that you wrote them and feel great about it.

    Dude, Brian Tracey in his book "Goals!" says the exact same thing. He says that if you write out specific goals, even if you forget about them, a year later you'll be surprised as to how many of them you've achieved.

    It's uncanny how relevant this post is to my life right now. Thanks ;)

    That's funny, something similar happened to me just yesterday. I was looking through my xPad notes and I saw a note that I made about a year ago. It was to improve one of my websites by adding a chat, moderators, more content, more links, and more things. As I looked through each one of them I realized that I had already subconsciously done everything in that year! That site had been neglected for years and it's now doing pretty well.

    Goal setting does work!
