Goals. We’ve all had them. Heck, we’ve been making goals since learning to walk. In kindergarten our goal was have fun and make it to the bathroom on time. Hmm…..as an old(er) man, that last one is still my goal. Ok….I digress. The point I’m making is never stop making goals. When you first enter into the work force, you rarely think of retirement. But as you get older, you should begin envisioning how you want your life to be once retired? Do you... want to travel? Do you want to do volunteer work? Do you want to open your own business? Or do you just want to do nothing? Even THAT is a goal.
At any rate, to reach any goal you have to plan. That’s the most crucial phase. Without proper planning, goals are rarely met. But for some reason, some of us are intimated by the planning phase. Don’t be. It’s YOUR plan! No one’s gonna judge you. But remember, output is a direct correlation to input; meaning if you want the most you gotta put in the most (be it money, time, 401K, etc.)
Here is today’s thought:
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
