Every year, when fall rolls around, we all tend to get really busy. It’s the last quarter of the year and kids go back to school. Everything seems to compound into one busy and tiring quarter. This year, I challenge you to think of things a bit differently.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • What am I doing now that I want to be doing in five years?
  • What are my priorities now and do I want them to be the same in five years?
  • What will seems like just a bump in the road that is a big deal now?
  • What are some changes I want to see in my life five years from today?
  • Can I start making those changes now?

Really take a moment to think the answers through. You will realize that perhaps some of the challenges you face now aren’t such a big deal when you look at them as things that have already passed. And perhaps you will see that there are some changes you can start making today to become the person you want to be five years from now.

I found that this is a much better way to set your goals for the last quarter of the year. It helps put things in perspective, doesn’t it?
