LEWD: Goal-Setting For The Information Age

Some people think that our attention spans have been reduced by TV, videos and computer games. So, we need a new way of goal-setting that suits our limited focal range. And here it is.

L: Little
E: Easy
W: Well-Defined
D: Day-to-week time

Don't set big goals you won't reach. Small is reasonable. Reasonable goals are simple to do. (eg. practice typing for ten minutes). Use a span of time in which you can easily envision all the steps (day or week). The big goals? Call them dreams.

Alternate formulations:
E-Dubya-D: EZ, Well-Defined, Day-2-week time
EBC: Easy, Brief and Clear
