Well, the year is fast running to the end. Many men have dissolved their resolutions. Things are back as they used to be, and strong men have agreed to remain mediocre by their actions.
For a short while, at the beginning of the year (or perhaps at the start of the second half of the year), the strong urge to fulfill their dreams descended like a great waterfall on a thirsty land; and shortly after, the zeal to fight really hard for those things they want has gradually faded away.
It is so interesting how we allow our lives to run like cars without drivers.
We give way to our lustful desires and allow them roll away our deepest desires like passing infatuations erode a good marriage. This fault may not be yours entirely; but do you have a plan for this year (or this second half) – a concrete, written plan? Have you been able to break down your plans into workable pieces and allot them to separate weeks? Can you knock them off one at a time?
Close your eyes … roll your eyeballs.
Remember last year, last two years, last three years. Do you see any significant changes in your life? Need I remind you how fast time rides away with the speed of a rocket? Okay, try to remember two or more things you particularly wanted by all means and got them.
You know this, but I will still say it.
We live a ‘jet age'.
Things are happening so fast around the world; and yet we have to compete with people in other countries as the world fast becomes a global village.
Pick a pen and a paper now. We don't take ourselves very seriously until we start writing down our plans and goals. Write down your plans, desires and goals. Divide them into workable pieces and allot them to specific weeks or months of the year.
Until you commit your goals to paper, your intentions are like seeds without soil
