Where do you picture yourself in five years from now? What will you have accomplished?
I picked up this great book from Compendium that asks that exact question, then gives you all the motivation in the world to get out there and get it done!
Did you know:
In five years Columbus opened up a whole new world by discovering the Bahamas, Cuba, Hispanolia, and North and South America.
In just under five years, Michaelangelo painted the Sistene Chapel.
In less than five years Shakespeare wrote "Hamlet," "Othello," "King Lear," "Macbeth" and five other immortal plays.
In 1961, Julia Child graduated from cooking school with a quirky idea for a TV show. Four years later she won an Emmy as America's Favorite TV Chef.
Fired from their home improvement jobs, Arthur Black and Bernie Marcus created a business model called Home Depot and went public with their idea. Just three years after losing their jobs their annual sales were $1 billion.
At age 30, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was living in a 500-square foot apartment. Five years later his net worth was $10 billion.
What do YOU want to do with the next five years? Run a marathon? Lose weight? Compete in an Ironman? Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Einstein, Ghandi, and Babe Ruth.
Today is your day. Seize it.
