Your top 20 list is an action plan for your goals. The top 20 list is based on a research study done by Dominican University on goal setting. The results of the study were that 70 percent of the participants who sent weekly updates to a friend reported successful goal achievement compared to the 35 percent of those who kept their goals to themselves, without writing them down.

The objective of the top 20 list is to write down your goals and find a friend, mentor, or family member to report your weekly progress.
