I'm all for this. Having a goal with a sort of idea about how to get there. But then people jump the gun. They plan their futures and how life will be. And then they get stuck with their focus on the future. Which is a serious problem.
Because if you're stuck with your eyes in the future, you don't look around you in the present.
And the big disadvantage of that is that you miss short cuts and opportunities, that could have gotten you to your goal sooner. Or at least a lot easier.
So yes. Know what you want, but I suggest you focus on things you can do right now that will lead you closer to your goals.
Another thing I have about plans is that it makes me inflexible. Maybe it's because I'm human, but my plan only keeps me open to one or two possibilities. Anything more than that and I just don't have anything ready for it. I often talk to people who procrastinate on doing something because they don't have enough money or time to do it. It's as if our plans just don't work if we don't have the perfect starting position in place.
Honestly, though, life is a bit simpler than that. If you can't afford classes, find another way to learn. Or find away to earn the money. If you don't have time, stop trying to find blocks of it to devote to your goals and work to it bits at a time as much as possible.
That means you have to plan every move you make towards your goal, yes, but not every move you will make. It sounds like a small difference.
But in reality, it's life-changing.
Thank You that I can trust in Your plans. That I can know that You are in full control of my future.
Please help me to live in the present. Open my eyes to the possibilities and opportunities around me. And guide me in planning whatever I need to do right now to achieve my goals.
I pray this in Jesus's name.
