Accomplish Your Goals—Without the Stress 

Your Goal Guide BookStart with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.

A method that works. Eckerling presents readers with her own tested and proven method: The DEB Method.

Eckerling’s method is a roadmap for goal setting that helps professionals lay down a plan and accomplish their mission.

Making the process as stress-free as possible. Goals can be intimidating because of the pressure we often put on ourselves to succeed. However, Eckerling believes that setting goals should be easy—we just need the right tools to tackle them. Through a combination of writing exercises and systems, Eckerling provides readers with a process for making and setting goals that is stress-free and easy-to-manage.
