|Plenty of time for this too...|
I read this piece about creating a goals poster one day and have used it as a reference for several pieces i've written. After reading it, the information started to sink in. So i tried it -- setting a goal that may have seemed impossible, but naming it clearly and believing it will happen. And guess what? It is.
I don't want to believe that living in my beloved city of Portland was keeping me from achieving my goals. I want to believe that it's still the city for me when i return. But by leaving what i loved, i was able to give myself a shakeup, to re-evaluate, and to spend the time i would otherwise spend socializing semi-obsessing about meeting certain financial and career goals. Like that article outlines, sometimes simply naming what you want starts to make it real. Try it -- it works!
