“How often do you plan each year based on what you intend to do during the next year, or the one after that? Everything you do is positioning. Are you positioning yourself to do AMAZING things in 1, 3, or 5 years from now?”
I’m a big fan of long-term thinking so this Benjamin P. Hardy post struck a chord with me.
It suggests you plan your upcoming year not based on what you want to happen in 2017, but on what you want to happen in the years that follow it.
Doing so forces you to recognize the control and responsibility you have for your own future and increases the likelihood you’ll wind up where you want to be.
