The Four P's of Developing And Pursuing A Goal

One of the great things I heard at the Tuskegee Airmen symposium was advice for developing and pursuing a goal, Col. Charles McGee's Four P's.

Several people asked me if I was going to put them on a picture or graphic. This is it. Feel free to save, print, or use this.

The Four P's How To Develop And Pursue A Goal

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

*******************

Slightly related note: After the symposium, we explored Fantasy of Flight, and spent time at their Wing WalkAir ropes course and zip line. Zip lining is something I have wanted to do for forever. I put a short video of my zip line adventure on YouTube. It was SO much fun.

  1. My problem isn't that I don't know what I want to be when I grow up (although that certainly is true). It is that I just don't want to grow up at all. However, I don't want my snark to take away from the beauty and power in the message that you just shared. This really is good stuff!

    1. #4 is hard for me too! It often feels so much easier to give up, even though it is never really a good idea.

  8. This is fantastic!! I love how this is applicable to so much. I had a dozen things flash through my mind when I read this. Thanks for the graphic. Something about complimentary colors and pretty font that makes things a bit more inspirational, no? ;)
