“Goals that are not written down are just wishes”

"Goals that are not written down are just wishes” is a motivational saying that has been printed on many images. “Goals that are not written down are only wishes” has been cited in print since at least 1998, and “Goals that are not written down are only wishes” was cited in print in 1999.

“Goals that aren’t written down are just dreams” was posted on Twitter on August 20, 2009. “‘Goals that are not written down are just dreams’... @JamesWong_CEO in response to a question at yesterday’s brown bag” was posted on Twitter on December 3, 2009. “’Goals that are not written down are just dreams.’ - Fitzhugh Dodson” was posted on Twitter on October 27, 2017.

“Goals that are not written down are just wishes. Fitzhugh Dodson” was posted on Twitter on May 21, 2011. American clinical psychologist and author Fitzhugh Dodson (1923-1993) is often credited, but earlier citations than from the late 1990s have not been found. Authorship is unknown.

“A goal without a plan is just a wish” is a similar saying.
