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. I consistently go back and review my five year plans to see whether I am on schedule to accomplish what I set out to do. I have made a habit of always thinking about where I am heading.
