shoot for the stars

I came across this amazing quote by Woodrow Wilson last night: "We grow great by dreams. All big (wo)men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”

What dreams are brewing within you? Taking time to step off life's hamster wheel to ponder if you are moving in the direction of your dreams can be scary, even saddening. However, as Plato reminds us, the unexamined life is not worth living. Create space to reflect on your dreams. It's so easy to lose sight of them among the day-to-day. What is one small step you can take this moment to move in the direction of your dreams?

Carry a journal to capture dreams. Note dreams on your planner and in your office. Enlist a dream buddy to help hold you accountable. Never lose sight of the big picture. Dream big, you deserve it!
