“We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next 10. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.” ~ Bill Gates
Why are we overly ambitious in the short term but woefully shortsighted as we envision our long-term future?
In the goal-setting arena, we impatiently set our sights on short-term success. Who has time for 10 years of planning and hard work? We want success THIS year!
But when we view the idea of reaching our goals as a process, we see that daily efforts compound over time and our ultimate success is greater than we could have imagined — if we stick to the process.
Listen in for a fascinating discussion of patience and persistence, and reaping the rewards of taking the slow road..
