Getting Things Done

Having objectives

Ever since I was 13, I would have objectives. And since my 20’s, I have always had a formal five year plan; writing out what I want to be and what I want to do. I can tell you now looking back that this has been a huge factor in what I have accomplished in my life. A critical piece is the tracking component.
