Stephen Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, explains in Habit #2: Begin with the end in mind; that you can direct how you want your career and life to unfold by looking, well, at the end of your life and career. Throw yourself forward 10, 20, 30 years. How do you want your career to end? What do you want your legacy to be? How do want those closest to you to remember you?
Stephen Covey says this question is often a sobering realization, yet it lets us peer into the future to discover what’s most important. Then, we can “back-time” to the present and take action to fulfill with the endgame fresh in our memory and more aware of opportunities that align with our goals as they present themselves.
