I often ask people do they plan on being around in 10 years, and almost without fail, they all say yes. Then my next question always is do you have a road map or blueprint? And I usually get a puzzled look. In my experience people don't accomplish much, simply because they don't know what they should be focused on. So time just simply flies away in their life.
Let me share a few things on my list:
1. Build a strong network of friends
2. Develop better relationships with family members
3. Write a best seller
4. Become a part owner in an NBA team
So, when I look at my list of 35, I ask myself what can I work on and accomplish in the next 1-3 years. Looking at my list, building a strong network of friends and developing better relationships is doable and achievable. Years 4-7 I will work on writing a best seller and year 8-10 position myself for ownership. I do this for every thing on my list, so I know what I should be working on now, and where my focus should be.
This allows me to have great focus and discipline in my life and it will help you have great focus as well. So I challenge you to write down your goals and don't cheat yourself, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you are focused and headed in the right direction.
