022: Long term thinking and planning

We always want to be moving forward and progressing towards our goals. In this episode we discuss long term thinking and the importance of setting goals for your future.

It can be hard to plan the exact steps to take to reach a goal set for five or ten years time, because life happens and your wants and needs may change. But having long term goals means you’ll be able to make decisions now in the present that align to them in order to keep you on the right track.

Listen in to hear about our goals and our advice for getting into a long term mindset.

"It’s good to come up with a long term plan and long term goals, but at the end of the day you have to take action now in the present"
