  2. Set you up for success (create an action plan to achieve your goals)
  3. Prepare you for the unexpected (eliminate roadblocks or barriers that stand in the way)
  4. Keep you on course (hold you accountable for your goals)
  5. Celebrate your achievements (acknowledge your hard work when you reach your goal)
