Have a dream (in honor of Dr. King)…
…and live it!
Pick three things you would regret not accomplishing or experiencing in your life (getting a degree, having a baby, going on a safari in Africa, starting a business, etc.).
Now design a plan to make all three happen in the next five or ten years. Set interim goals in your plan (for example, get college info, find out about financial aid, register for a class – or set aside $200 a month in a special trip account, investigate safari companies, contact travel agent, etc.). Promise to repeat this exercise every time you achieve one of your dreams.
