By planning ahead, you’ll often end up at potential walls that you will need to climb over on your journey to success. If you understand what those issues are at the beginning of the process, you can prepare for them. Ask someone for assistance earlier or even just to soften the blow!
Having clear goals in life, gives you an enormous sense of clarity of what is important. What is a priority? If it’s not helping you achieve your goal then how can you change the task so it does. Or even question why am I doing this, if it isn’t helping me? Without personal/career goals you’re just playing the waiting game. You really can’t just sit on the couch and wait to achieve your dream…
“Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
