I get caught up in the day to day. I think most of us probably do. The problems that cross my desk or face my loved ones on a daily basis distract me from the big picture – 5, 10, 20 years down the road – stuff. And, when I get distracted from the end goals, I lose focus on the smaller goals to get there.
This year, I plan to have tunnel vision. I am not going to allow daily distractions to prevent me from seeing where I want to be 5 years from now – much less 20 years from now. I am going to plaster reminders in my wallet, on my bathroom & bedroom mirrors, on my visor in my car – everywhere I could be distracted from my goals.
It’s not just about the next 12 months – it’s about the next 12 years.
