But, how can I reach my shore if the surface is always moving? Change is a constant and unexpected events will hit you again and again . So be prepared and defined what you want. Be clear with your purpose; what are your priorities in life. This vision of the life you imagine for yourself will be your “shore”. So, don’t lose sight of it while you are in the ocean and do whatever you need to do to get there. The risk with losing sight of your shore is that you can end up on a very different one and settle there. And settling could start sounding like a good idea in your head. "Settling for a few years, things are good on this shore", not what you expected, but they are not bad either. Actually things could be working out, as they usually do in comfort zones. But deep inside, you will always know that you settled for it.
So, don’t settle, never settle. Wake up, put yourself back in the water and try it again. But this time take a surfboard with you. The surfboard you will need is a ‘’long -term goals surfboard”. Get ready for the waves. Long term goals are the best tool to stabilize your plans in life, and make them withstand the impact of the waves of constant change. If you grab your surfboard strongly it will surely make your dreams and purposes survive. So grab it and create a 3 year plan with long term goals for yourself. Include different areas of your life such as your health, your family, your development and growth, your passions and your career. It doesn’t have to be written in stone, you can modify or adjust it as much as you need.
Having this long term goals in a 3 year plan will allow you to ride the waves. No matter where you are, no matter who you are with, you will always find time. And remember you have the power to adapt it to the moment you are living in. Get ready for the waves, bring your surfboard, stand upon it and let the waves carry you to "your" shore.
