“You become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down.”
-Dr. Gail Matthews, psychology professor at DUC
Goals can be set and achieved by everyone and anyone, but it’s been proven over and over that goals are more likely to be achieved when they are written down. Seeing a visual goal taps into the part of the brain that thinks logically. This means that the brain can now see that this goal is achievable which will help one’s motivation and determination to actually get it done. The visual will serve as a reminder and a way to track its progress.
Progress thermometers and goal charts are ways to track and record an objective’s growth and development. These tracking tools are made to document the levels and milestones of a variety of goal types including individual, group, fundraising and revenue. Non-proﬁt organizations, such as schools and churches, use fundraising thermometers to record the donations they give or receive. Retail and corporate businesses use revenue charts and posters to create action plans and track their sales goals. Chore charts and responsibility boards help children with housework routine at home and assignments in the classroom.
Progress thermometers are useful for generating awareness around town for your charity's, business's, or non-profit organization's fundraising goals. We print them big enough for people driving down the street to see them, or small enough to fit in a classroom at school.
