“Remember, dreams without goals are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment. Have dreams, but have goals, life goals, yearly goals, monthly goals, daily goals.” — Denzel Washington
This is something my own mentors have gone to great lengths to teach me, and rightfully so. If you can’t measure it, you don’t know how to improve it — or worse, you spend too much time on the “scenic road” and you never actually reach a point of conclusion. Measurement doesn’t always have to do with time, or money, or something tangible.
