The difference between a dream and a goal is a timeline.

Hello Swordfish. I like desire, too. But without a timeline will desire alone get you there? Maybe.

But I don’t think there’s a successful entrepreneur out there that would disagree that setting a timeline is a key ingredient to reaching your goals.

You have to have desire to reach a goal, yes, but if you desire something – you need (or should) map out how you’re going to get there. In other words, the timeline is your road map and is a great starting point. Without it, you could be flying blind in your efforts and achieve a hit-and-miss pattern.

The interesting thing is many people forget or don’t know that actually working your plan backwards can be more helpful than planning it starting with today.

Simple and to the point, Brett.

John – I love this one.

It is, quite simply, perfection.

LOL Swordfish. Love the comment and I agree completely!

See, this is why I have a blog and want to network with other entrepreneurs, we all learn from each other.

Thanks for stopping by!
