When dreaming about your future and the life you want, it’s easy to lose touch with reality. To make your dreams come true, you need to make a plan. Without a plan, your dreams will forever elude you. Start with the big vision for what you want, then work backwards. Set goals, develop a plan with milestones along the way, and then create deadlines to hold yourself accountable. This will put you on the path to realizing the dream.

Also, any dream worth chasing won’t happen overnight. This is all the more reason you need a plan with deadlines and milestones along the way that will ensure you eventually get there.
