People with a plan reached their desired goal faster

Experiments examined school children from the ages of 8 to 12. These children needed to plan out a desired academic future.

The control groups imagined only the academic future they wanted. They did not address how to reach that goal.

The study found that students with a plan reached their desired goal better.
