The clock is ticking.
In fact, you don’t have to do a thing and 2025 shall show up right on time.
While time is completely predictable – I’m interested in you. Are you predictable? Do you have a clue what 2025 looks like? Are you prepared? Are you planning? Are you creating the 2025 you desire or are you going to wait and see what happens?
If you haven’t heard me before – I’ll repeat:
“You aren’t on a Deliberate Journey without a destination and momentum.”
Do the Work:
- Print this post.
- Complete the letter.
- Share it with a loved one; talk about it.
- Make Deliberate decisions to get moving!
