tba, there's enough to work on here, but let me know when you need me to add a few finishing touches. 

This is a "serious checklist", meaning it is not "for show" but that it is complete, to follow with rigor.  To "get to" success, you must follow The Program For Success In Life, but use this checklist to fill in the holes and to bolster up the key skills and procedures to insure that success happens!  Those who are unsuccessful (low achievers) will object to how much work is needed to reach the levels of effectiveness to be successful in life!  [To succeed, you must be highly proactive and "at cause in the matter of your life" - this means that when you are going through this checklist and where you see something that is not linked to yet, that you enter the term yourself into the search engine and then choose the links from that piece to get down to any depth and/or breadth you need in order to fully understand and implement (get results).]

__ Decide # of hours a week to study.
__ Consider setting up a Success Notebook.  (You create it, print, use tabs.  How To Set Up.)
__ Enter the appropriate exercises/todos into the Long Term Plan Notebook, and/or 
__ Enter them into a task management systems as todos, with tickles as needed. 

Below, check off those items you are doing and circle those you need to do.  Then schedule it (tickle in a calendar) to review this every quarter year.
