It sounds quite simplistic, but it’s worth being reminded: In order to get exactly where we want to go in life we have to follow Jim Morrison’s lyrical advice and “keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel.”

There are more occasions than I’d like to count where I get distracted after starting out on a long journey. I’m giddy with excitement, but have the potential to lose interest fast.

We have to remember why we decided to take on the endeavor in the first place and keep the end in mind while making our trek. Otherwise, it’s very easy to get side-tracked and lose our way.

The next thing we know, we look around wondering how we ended up here. Let’s remember to keep the end goal in mind while we push forward. The more real we make that vision in our mind, the easier it is to stay on task.

Let’s be efficient and purposeful with our projects and never forget to keep your eyes on the target.
