How does one get things done? How does one make a dream a reality or carry a plan through to completion? Many of us seem to have unrealized goals or incomplete plans and many of us face tasks that appear overwhelming—even impossible to achieve. This is true not only of individuals, but of companies and even countries. History is filled with failed projects.
In examining the subject of organization, L. Ron Hubbard developed an enormous body of technology to ensure the success of any group. In doing so, he also provided a solution to the most common of failings: the lack of ability to execute plans.
In this booklet and corresponding course, you will discover how to attain literally any goal, large or small. Plans can be carried through to fruition, but a number of vital steps must be taken, one after the other. You’ll learn what these steps are and how to apply them to anything—a personal ambition, a family, a group, a business and more. You’ll learn that your dreams can become real.

“As an ambitious and creative person I often have ideas about ways in which I could improve my life or the lives of the people around me, my family and friends. However, often these ideas come and go without ever seeing fruition. Every day I face new challenges in life and until now I have found it easy to procrastinate or to drop plans because I let barriers get in my way.
“Targets and Goals has taught me the importance of having a battle plan and an overall strategy so that when problems occur one can either deal with the problem and still continue towards one's overall objective, or adapt and re-evaluate so that the problem becomes small in relation to your end goal.
“The technology in fact gave me an entirely different outlook on planning and made me realize I had a very idealistic and unreal outlook on how to achieve success. I thought that one day it would just work out and that that would be it. Now, while understanding that it will take hard work and determination to achieve success I feel confident that this technology has given me a support system to which I can constantly refer.
“As with the course in Study Technology, I already have the proof of how amazing this technology is. The goal I set myself as one of my practicals is something I have been thinking about doing for months, yet had made no effort to get going and do something about it. Now, not only do I have a strategy to complete this project, but very detailed targets to use in order to realize my idea. I now look to the future waiting for challenges to arise with the knowledge that these will not be negative things but opportunities to use good strategy and planning in order to achieve success!” –G.C.
“I completed the Targets and Goals Course through the Scientology Volunteer Ministers website. After reading the book online and completing the practicals, I applied the tools to my business.
“Within several weeks of using the tools, I've increased the number of prospect appointments from approximately 1-2 per week to 6-8 per week, and I have two new clients I am working with. The course is helpful in that the practicals teach you how to apply the tools. It is more than just theory. Applying the tools makes you extremely focused on the goals. All of the activities that do not support the goal are eliminated, and only high-level activities that lead you to the goals are employed.
“I really enjoyed this course and I carry around my Targets and Goals book so that I can be sure to implement the tools on a daily basis. I am confident that my business will succeed. I am seeing signs of it right now.” –M.H.
Given up on your dreams?
Do you make big plans but then seem unable to follow them through? What’s the first step to reaching your goal? Do you know what you want but don’t know how to get it?
To conceive a goal is not difficult to do. Most of us have no shortage of hopes and ambitions, and indeed these are the stuff of life. Yet at the same time many people draw up elaborate and impressive plans to reach their goals, which somehow never come to pass. Some don’t even reach the point of drawing up a plan, while others attribute failure or success to matters of luck.
Making goals a reality, whether for an individual or an organization, is the subject of Targets and Goals. More than just a program to “motivate” people, here are the practical tools for anyone to achieve the goals they set.
