Long term goals often never go according to plan.
But visions are not plans.
They are only ideas of where you want to be in the future. That’s why they are so useful.
You must have a vision of where you want to be going if you want peace of mind. Now the thing is, your vision can constantly change, and that’s okay. It’ll get more specific, and you’ll realize some of the things you thought were important before, didn’t turn out to be that important.
The key is to choose a direction and refine it by degrees as you go.
