The trouble we often get into is getting a clear picture of what the future really looks like. How could anyone have envisioned Twitter five years ago? Did you really think gasoline would be nearing $5 a gallon?
When it comes to our personal life, planning for the future is a lot like rock climbing.
You know your goal is the top of the wall or mountain, but you don't know exactly where you'll place your foot or hand at every point. But whatever you do, never lose sight of the goal.
Keep imagining the future you'd like to have. How will you get there? What steps will you have to take?
Now, start climbing.
