Unverifiable essay-like content to consider[edit]

I'm removing this text from the article. It's (1) inappropriate tone and (2) likely original research. There may be one or two points in all this that are worth re-incorporating, which is why I'm pasting it here.

The ideal – taught – is a disposition that causes an intrinsic drive to be delivered in a professional manner. The parameters of professionalism indicate a time continuum – without continuity – but exhaustion and anxiety: an irony. It is a conundrum out mania, to cause professionals to work backward in order to get to the ultimate goal. It is without faith, but grander thought in moments of observation in hopes to serve need; whether it be self or others. As goal-setters, time-targets become real and more so sensational as the end draws near—a sense of urgency falls afoot. The time is precise and specific; in which is set by the goal-setter.
Compulsions, fantasy and dreams that serve an observed inequity – or perhaps it is a personal bout against inequity – is the cause of personality; which can be determined by the value one puts on extrinsic and intrinsic drives usually defined by the individual or goal-setter. Many times the definition of goal-setting comes from free literary expression that serves a needed fulfillment of goals one must fulfill to become satisfied. This expression – written – may bring to hindsight a goal grander that must be made to self in order to fulfill that need, and even desire. At times satisfaction may come from serving others, and at times it comes from serving the self as a result of personal development. It is true that one can not identify another as being like them; for the other has distinctive traits, skills and abilities as a result of individual sovereignty attributed to individual development. It may be difficult to warrant the cause, but it is not difficult to warrant the need when under marginal disillusionment one becomes focused again. What may come to hindsight as a result of sovereignty is relative according to each individual. In other words: goals are different from person to person.

Block of original research removed:
However, some[who?] say that much of what is currently taught about goal setting is incomplete.
Prominent speakers on goal setting such as Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar or Douglas Vermeeren have suggested that goal setting involves more than writing something down, setting a date and working towards that end. In order to make the success or achievement of lasting value the person must become something different in the process.[citation needed] There are significant differences in how a person accomplishes a "be" goal (character-driven) versus a "have" goal (an accomplishment or a possession to obtain).
Left summarized like this:
Much personal development writing is based on goal setting, including the work of Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, and Douglas Vermeeren.
I think they add a focus on the personal change that happens in the process of reaching a goal – that needs a source. --Pnm (talk) 01:36, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

This article is also pretty one-sided (as you'd expect from an article written like a personal reflection), there's no Critique or Opposition or anything like that section. BlueRoll18 09:07, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
