Most of us get around to our dreams when we have time. That’s being opportunistic. But there’s a way to dream strategically and it starts with answering three simple questions.
In this episode, Leary and Armin discuss some of the half-truths we hear in many inspirational quotes and share this week’s Inspire Me quote from Colin Powell:
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”
They also discuss three simple questions that help you be more strategic with your dream:
- How important is it? Strategically thinking about your dream means it’s important enough to prioritize and make regular time to pursue.
- How hard is it? Strategically thinking about your dream means you’re realistic about the challenges that will come your way and you know the size of your commitment is what it takes to stop you.
- Who cares? Strategically thinking about your dream involves living out the mission God has put in your heart, not other’s agendas for you.
The Challenge Me for this episode is to simply write down your answers to these questions, taking time to thoughtfully consider them with respect to your dream.
