You are going to die. At some point, you are going to leave the land of the living and join the buried at the graveyard. Death is an inevitable part of the human life, and sooner or later we will all experience it. The precious time we have to live a meaningful life is fleeting away second by second, and the best thing we can do with our time here is to achieve that which we can, while we can. And to do that, you need to determine what exactly it is that you want to achieve while you’re still breathing. After all, it’s hard to reach a destination you can’t name.
Yet far too often, that’s exactly what people do. There’s nothing wrong with not knowing exactly what you want to achieve, but you’re cheating yourself if you never take the time to think about it. For even when working the hardest you can, you’re truly driving around aimlessly if you don’t have a destination in mind. Even a general idea is better than nothing; at least then you know the general direction, state, or maybe even the zip code of where you’re trying to go.
Knowing what you want to achieve is of vital importance, no matter where you are in life. If you can frequently assess where you’re trying to go (for your destination may change with new experiences, passions, and desires), where you’re currently at, and create a plan for how to attain that which you want to achieve, you are far more likely to do so.
Once again, let me remind you that you are going die. It’s inevitable. So take the time to think about and write down all you want to achieve while you’re still breathing. After all, it’s easier to reach a destination when you can name it.
Until next time.
