Inventor Thomas A. Edison set himself an ambitious goal. It was to come up with a major new invention every six months, a minor invention every ten days. When he died, he had 1,093 U.S. patents and over 2,000 foreign ones.

Edison knew that by setting such goals for himself, and striving to reach them, he was bound to increase his output. The same principle applies in our work. No matter what goals you set for yourself…they are bound to help your results. Challenge yourself - then rise to meet the challenge.
