SIDELIGHTS: Leon H. Shepherd told CA: "After speaking to numerous corporate and sales organizations on goal setting, oftentimes those in attendance would mention that they had kids in high school and college, and felt the message would benefit them as well. So, after extensive research in bookstores and libraries, I realized that there wasn't a single book on goal-setting for students. Therefore, I decided to write a book for students on setting and achieving goals."
