How will you know that you have arrived if you don’t know where you’re going?
Many people just drift through life. They hope that the door of opportunity will
open for them, but they have no strategy to find that door.
The bad habit of becoming a drifter can begin at an early age. It is so easy to sit
back and just accept whatever comes. The challenge is to decide what you want,
and develop a plan to get it.
A properly devised plan will have bench marks along the way to measure progress.
The plan should contain “to do” lists of necessary achievements for progress.
Otherwise, the plan will be nothing more than a meaningless wish list.
The beauty of a plan is that it is fail-proof. Even if you should not attain the highest goal,
whatever falls short of that is still so much more than you would have attained just drifting.
