The most important thing that successful people have is goals.
They set goals and spend everyday working towards it. Eventually, they will reach it. When? That depends on how much, and how smart, their work is.
But as time passes, it’s easy to lose sight. If we don’t implement a system to remind ourselves of our goals, we will end up doing something else, or even not doing anything at all.
One way you can avoid this from happening is to write down your goal everyday. Then, at the end of the day, reflect what have you done to contribute to it.
As long as you can answer confidently that you’ve been diligent, you are closer to it.
