Begin with the End in Mind

path in the woodsWe often talk about the journey of our life, in fact, I’m in the process of creating the name for my book and one of the titles I’m leaning toward is A Business Woman’s GPS: A Guide when The Plan to Having It All leads You Astray.

A Business Woman’s GPS: A Guide when The Plan to Having It All leads You Astray

We are moving forward, doing the best we can to make the right decisions in the moment. But what if we looked at it from a different perspective? What if we started with the end. In the book the Five People You Meet in Heaven – it chronicles the journey of the main character 83 year old Eddie from his death and then backwards, ending with his birth. An interesting way to look at life.

I just came across an article called Begin with the End in Mind  and the author reminds readers of the famous Robert Frost poem, The Road Less Traveled that he ends by saying…

 

Begin with the end in mind and then start walking.

I like that idea – we formulate the vision and then start the journey – from where ever we are in our lives at this very moment. So if you picture the end – what does it look like? What have you accomplished and with whom have you shared the adventure?
