I first learned this concept from Brian Tracy. It is a wonderful and challenging exercise to think ahead to what you want your life to look like – ideally – in five years. It’s far better to design one’s future than to just let it happen. Dream a bit. Where will you be? What will you be doing? Who will you be with? What will you be earning? What will your health be like? What kinds of relationships will you have? Etc., etc.
Once you do this, then develop some concrete objectives and action steps to make this ideal life a reality. You won’t get there without a clear, measurable road map. This can make an amazing difference in how your life turns out. Want some help doing this? Let us know.
