Debra Ecklerling is a “guide on the side, not a sage on the stage” and helps people develop their own goals. Readers cannot merely sit back and absorb her wisdom, and there is work to do throughout the book that helps people realize their dreams. Writing your current and future biography is one of the first activities. Where do you want to go? You might not get there if you aren’t sure of your “goaltopia.”

Questions such as: What stops you from achieving your goals? She compares achieving goals to a road trip. You have to plan your itinerary. The D*E*B Method can be used for professional and personal goals. She suggests simple thinking exercises and has straightforward, sound advice to reach the dream you have in your head. First, you go back in time, think about today, and then consider the future. Examples with goals are listed that can be personalized and tweaked to fit readers. She suggests going undercover to see people doing what you have dreamed of doing to be sure it is a fit for you.

Yes, you’ll need a mission statement and a motto. You know, the elevator pitch. It is beneficial to be ready with such ideas and avoid tripping on your tongue.

The book has organized, clear, helpful, truthful, and easy to follow information is priceless. If you procrastinate or need help in this area, buying this book is a must.

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals

Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
