I always find it amusing when I randomly come across pieces of paper on which I’ve jotted notes about future goals. These random moments may not actually be all that random though. They tend to occur at times when I’m confused about the direction my life is heading. It’s during those times when I question every aspect of my existence.
However, when I read the note where I’ve written my goals, the picture becomes clear again. As if a future version of my self (that has already achieved everything I intend to do) appears out of no where with my future already scripted out. That person on paper seems so amazing to me, and I can’t wait to meet him. I know this might sound crazy, but hey, I’m just being honest.
If there’s any lesson to take from my ramblings, it’s this. During a rare moment of clarity, jot notes about what you want your future to be. Then stick those notes in the most obscure places. You’ll thank yourself later when you become frustrated with the path you’re on, and one of those notes pops up and reminds you of your purpose. Stay focused, don’t quit, set goals.
