We all lose focus from time to time and it’s ok.

However, we can’t lose focus of the big picture because that is what keeps us going.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately. Soul searching, I guess you can say.

Do I want to keep going down this path or should I start going down a different one?

Am I happy with where I am in life right now?

Will I regret my decision later down the line?

A lot of questions that I won’t be able to answer if I don’t make a decision.

So I started to write down my goals.

What I wanted to achieve now, next year, and in 3–5 years.

I know this isn’t something new but it was something I’ve brushed off in the past.

When you write something down, it becomes easier to see and focus on.

I’m still trying to decide what I want to do but one thing is for sure, the path ahead of me doesn’t look that intimidating anymore.
