Glance at the future

As a wise man once said, “Begin with the end in mind” (Stephen R. Covey). Knowing where to head is fundamental to your growth and a great habit to adapt yourself. Having no clear direction will lead to the inability to divide the relevant from the irrelevant. And besides, a goal keeps you motivated!

Beginning with the end in mind means having the habit of starting every morning, every task, and project with the image of the end goal as a frame of reference to evaluate everything else.

It’s about starting things off with a clear idea of the destination so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.

A great exercise to give yourself direction is to walk through these steps:

  1. Purpose: What do you want to do with your life?
  2. Vision: Where do you want to be in the next 3-5 years?
  3. Goals: What do you want to achieve, personally and professionally, in the next 1-2 years?
  4. Areas of Focus: What areas of your life deserve your attention?
  5. Projects: What commitments are you making to achieve your goals?
  6. Actions: What steps are you taking to meet those goals and get closer to that vision?

Good luck!
