Success is about aligning the actions of today to the desired outcomes of tomorrow.
This is where most of us fail.
Because the short-term adrenaline rush, the immediate reward, is very attractive when compared to something that might (or not) come at some point in the future. And what if when we are there we will not like it? And what if this shiny thing right here, right now will actually become a once in a lifetime opportunity?
It never does.
We spend our days moving from one distraction to the next, and it is only when we look back at our day, at our week, at our year, (at our life?) that we realize we are not a step closer to where we want to go.
It is natural, common and accepted. And we need to stop it.
