Small steps

“If you take care of minutes, hours will take care of themselves”


Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Have you thought about it?

Well, all those of you who have prepared themselves for an interview would have come across this question. What about you? If you still haven’t thought about it, think about it now.

Stability, success in your field, security, happiness, etc. would surely be the factors that guide your thoughts about your future. (If you have any other factor, which is unique for you, let me know in the comment section below). Now that you are ready with an image of your future in your head. Try relating it with your present. Connect the dots between your habit, mindset, and daily routine in the present, and, the image you have of your future.

Were you able to connect the dots?

The fascinating thing about the future is that it is like the tree that emerges from the roots of the present. Only when you water the roots in the present will you be able to see the branches in the future. It is not one day’s job.

What do you do all day?

Do you think your actions in the present are the roots of where you want to see yourself in the future? If it is, congratulations! Even if it isn’t don’t be disheartened. All you need to do is a back-calculation. Think about what you need to do today to see a result five years from now. Nurture those thoughts and habits that as per you will yield a good result. With this, you will get clarity about your vision and path which will make you unstoppable in your journey to success.

Let me know your views on this.
