Do you know what you want to get out of life? Have you made the work of really finding out what your goals are in life? Your personal as well as your professional goals. When the time is up, what do you want to have accomplished?
Once you have defined your goals you can start making the plan on how to get there. You can make both short and long term plans. Start with the long term goals and then divide them into smaller pieces. For instance, you set a 10 or 15 year target. Then you make the plan on what to do each year or every other year. For the current year I would divide into quarters, months, weeks and even days. So you are really clear about what you need to do, step by step, to reach your long term goal!
With a plan like this you will really increase the possibility of getting things you want and reach your goals. Go for it!
Wish you the best. Take Care. Namaste.
