own. But a dream and a vision can only take us so far. We have to be able to execute, which involves a detailed plan
with goals and targets. For many of us dreamers, this can prove to be a challenge. It is crucial to break goals up
into small, doable steps.

Creating better habits will always be on your to-do list. Intentional and automated actions are excellent tools to

a week or two, it works into my daily checklist with ease.
