Frequently we will set long term goals that will occur years from now BUT they are set taking current needs/wants into account. The problem with this is it doesn’t take into consideration what your needs/wants will be when the goal is met.
To give a simple example, a 14 year old might set a goal of making $100 a week. To a 14 year old, that amount might sound GREAT. However, if it takes 10 years to achieve this goal the 24 year old might not be too happy to be making $100 a week (not the greatest example but it’s the first one that came to mind!)
When setting long term goals, set them taking into consideration what things will be like when the goals will most likely be met. This is why it’s so important to keep an eye on trends and what is happening in the world and not just what is happening in your world.
Just something to think about
Have a great day!
