My experience is that a plan is needed to achieve goals. Action steps, step by step in detail plan. When the actual implementation is done, new opportunities are always created that are impossible to see before I start.
Often it takes time, before I see the effects, of what I have chosen to begin with. I know that change is the only thing that takes me further in my development (see last week’s text).
