Goals Study from Harvard 1979

How many of you have heard of this study?  “The 3% with written goals did far better then everyone else”  I hear about this all the time.  I thought I would check it out – maybe we could duplicate that at a local level in the schools.  Is it correlation or causation?  What other variables make a difference.  It could be an interesting experiment.  Turns out it may not be true.   A real one was done at Dominican University instead.  Doesn’t say much about the details but for a four week study it’s better then urban legend.
