What does your future hold? Not sure? Well, what future do you really want to create? If you can’t see it, then it may be due to a lack of focus. You might want to pause soon and give this renewed attention, because you will get to your future whether it’s the one you intend or not. As you’re barrelling down life’s highway, it’s important periodically to make sure you don’t miss a critical turn. It’s also likely that you’ll decide on some different, more meaningful destinations as you continue down the road.
