Choose a destination

In order to make progress, you must know exactly where you intend to go. Choose a clear and specific destination, and then you can get busy going there.

Having a vague idea of where you want to go is not going to do you any good. Know exactly where you desire to be and you’re already well on your way there.

The dreams that are compelling are the dreams that will motivate you to take whatever action is necessary. And the most compelling dreams are the ones with rich and meaningful details.

The goals you will achieve are the goals you can fully describe. Give real life and substance to your goals and you’ll quickly begin to realize them.

You can choose any destination you wish for your life. So choose one that thrills you and compels you to be the best you can be.

Delight in the rich details of where you are headed. And you’ll work your way steadily there.

— Ralph Marston
