Interesting piece and it does make one think. So Alex where does one just stop focusing on their dreams and goals and just cut bait? Year 1, Year 2, Year 5? Does one just not shoot for such lofty goals and just create small goals that they can achieve? I totally get what you are saying for most folks may not achieve the lofty goals they set for themselves(myself included) but a sure way not to achieve those goals is by not trying at all. Great article and beautifully written, this would make for a great roundtable discussion. Thanks and keep pushing the envelope.
