How are you ever going to fulfill your dreams if you don’t have any!? Do you know that most people never get clear on what they want in life. That’s what I call living a life by default and not by design.
Creating a vision for the next five years, and then turning that vision into a set of goals and action steps is perhaps the most important thing you can spend your time on, yet how often we just go along with the winds of change, not addressing what we want to experience and create.
Here’s just a small sample of what is possible in five years:
➢ In just under five years, Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel.
➢ In less than five years Shakespeare wrote Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Mac Beth and five other immortal plays
➢ At age 30, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was living in a 500-square-foot apartment. Five years later his net worth was $10 billion.
➢ Fired from their home improvement jobs, Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus created a business model called home depot and went public with their idea. Just three years after losing their jobs their annual sales were $1 billion.
