The ritual has done me a world of good!

About 3 years ago I decided I wanted to learn to read Hebrew. I come from a Secular Jewish home and have had precious little formal religious education. Fast forward to today, and I am proud to say that with practice, patience and persistence my Hebrew has improved. My ritual has been to read SOMETHING in Hebrew every day, no matter what that something is. The next step is to learn to write Hebrew in both block print and script.

Write down your goals & keep in mind "no option for failure".


It was a huge goal for many years to go to Israel this year to celebrate my marriages 10th anniversary later this month.

After achieving that goal when I returned back from Israel last week I have realized my goal was a reality because I wrote it down several times possibly every 6 months that I wanted this event to occur. Always asking yourself if your actions are taking you closer towards this goal or away from them will be an indicator if you are on the right track.

Thanks Charlie for really bringing the the word Awesome back to my vocabulary.

Daf Hayomi!

Great clip! I think you could have also highlighted the goal of finishing the entire Talmud- by committing to learn one daf a day, every day...for seven and a half years.

Focusing on the process, not the end goal is a real useful tip. Often I feel overwhelmed by the mere size of the end goal itself, get stressed, procrastinate and end up doing nothing. With this focus on the process, simple, clear and measurable action, I think it is a lot more easier to reach the goal. Thanks Charlie for this simple, and true tips. Goal itself is important because it indicates the direction but when it comes to action, I think we should focus on the every day ritual.
