Perhaps author and businessman Harvey Mackay said it best, “A dream is just a dream – a goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.” How often have we thought about various aspects of our lives and wished that somehow those attributes of our lives were different? Or even today, perhaps we thought about the day that we would retire and leave the chaos called work and leave this rat race to those who wish to remain in the craziness. Well, some people are just lucky and all aspects of their lives appear to be on track and life is great; retirement appears to be imminent and bound for success. Most of the working population isn’t so “lucky” and as a result, the other 99% of us have to plan. In order to make your dream a reality, it is required that we develop a plan and take action to achieve it.
