“And it came to pass when the Philistine arose and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.”  I Samuel 17:48


Men get into serious trouble when they do not have a clear definition of who they are or where they are going. Imagine a football coach trying to lead a football team without a game plan; a builder trying to build a house without a blueprint; or a CEO trying to lead a company without a business plan. 

All of the preceding examples perpetuate confusion because the leaders are trying to operate without a plan.

When men do not know their God-designed vision, they experience inner turmoil that results in outward confusion. But when a man realizes his true vision for life, his confusion, anger and destructive behavior are replaced with God’s purpose, values, vision and goals.

What are others saying about Goals Matter?


Mr. Haynes (Lead to Impact) provided a quality presentation for our students on establishing and implementing a plan to achieve their goals. The goal setting workshop was a valuable asset in our AFL Summer Leadership camp.  Excellent job!”

 “The workshop on setting and implementing goals facilitated by Mr. Haynes really helped me set a meaningful goal. During the workshop, I set a goal to improve my math grade to an “A” for the upcoming year. Using his Goals Matter! Program, I was able to set a solid plan to achieve my goal. This was an excellent workshop.”

Mr. Haynes’ workshop on Goals Matter! was awesome and I am definitely going to follow through with it.”

9th Grade Student
Goals Matter! Workshop


Goal setting is an excellent tool that has given me great motivation in accomplishing my dreams. Over the past four years, I have seen several goals personally accomplished because I implemented a written goals plan. I believe Mr. Haynes’ Goals Matter! Presentation is an excellent resource to help our young people develop a plan to achieve their dreams.”

Mr. Haynes did an outstanding job with our students helping them to see the importance of setting and achieving goals. His presentation was clear and focused and allowed students to establish a plan of action to reach a chosen goal.”

Denise Fountain


Mr. Haynes was certainly a blessing to our middle and high school students. I have been working with youth for decades and to say they are a ‘tough crowd’ to hold their attention would be an understatement. Mr. Haynes masterfully delivered his message of leadership and responsibility, which I personally think ‘took hold’ in the majority of our students.”
