I’ve been blog surfing today looking for information on goal setting lesson plans, and sometimes just a word or phrase is all it takes to spark my imagination and enable
me to add more free stuff to my website.

Thanks, I found a little nugget one on your blog that got me “sparkly”.

There’s a ton of information on goal setting on just “normal” bloggers blogs that is very useful in my research and I hope to add more free information to my web site with the tidbits I find in blogs, and am writing another eBook with input from bloggers based on the research I’m doing just by blog surfing.

You’d be surprised at the depth of information out there from people who are not selling or marketing anything remotely regarding goal setting lesson plans and goal setting.

Have a great day! And thanks again for the "nugget"!

Have you ever seriously gone blog surfing? I mean for hours, days even.

I’ve spent the past few days surfing specific keywords like goal setting theory and
have found dozens of new pieces of related goal setting information I’ve not seen or written about anywhere, and voila, your blog popped up for this specific keyword search.

Sometimes I get unrelated blogs, and others it’s right on. So much for the blog search engines.

Anyway, I’m trying to find and add relevant information to my web site that no one else has published or commented on. It looks like you might know a lot about goal setting so you can appreciate how difficult it is to find new stuff.

It’s amazing how a simple word or phrase like goal setting theory can help your imagination, and I found such a word on your blog that will be very helpful, which is why I’m leaving a comment…

…to say thank you. You’ve helped a stranger without even knowing it, in a way
you’d never guess.

Thanks again!
