Plotting out your goals in this manner will make you aware of the skills, financial aid and time you will need along the way. Develop short and mid_term goals to help you build those skills. You will begin to make decisions based on whether or not those choices will be beneficial to your long_term goals. If you just drift along in the sea of choices, allowing the tide of every day life to chart your course, it would only be by co_incidence that you will reach your destination or even recognize it when you arrive. As you achieve each step, however small towards your goal, your confidence will grow and solidify.
\"A goal properly set is halfway reached.\" _ Abraham Lincoln
