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.
