5 years is plenty of time to design the life you wan’t. You don’t need to work 45 years just to retire to then finally get to design your schedule and do what you want to do.
Five years from now, if you have the best 5 years of your life from today forward, what does your day look like?
If you had the opportunity to design your life and more money wasn’t a necessity and a job wasn’t a necessity what would a day look like?
What do you spend your time doing? What is your schedule like? Who do you spend time with? Where do you live? What activities do you do?
How much money do you need coming in on a monthly or yearly basis to live that life?
Make it happen. Make every decision (in the short term) with these goals in mind. If an activity doesn’t get you closer to your goal then the answer is no.
The first thing you need to do is really think on this question. What 20% of your activities give you 80% of your joy? Who is most important to you and what relationships do you want to invest in?
Wake up tomorrow morning an hour before you have any obligations. Don’t check your phone. Don’t check your email or social media. No input.
Sit down and think and write about your goal. Answer these questions. Design your life.
Then work backwards and make it happen.
