You can't go after what you want if you don't know what it is that you want. That's why "vision" is so important. Make it clear what you're trying to achieve so you can more effectively channel your time, energy, and resources into achieving it!
Forget about trying to compete with someone else. Create your own pathway. Create your own new vision. - Herbie Hancock - Don't worry about how to beat someone else by taking their path at a faster pace. Be your original self by going a new route that you want to experience. Determine your own goals to reach & picture those destinations in your mind to make them a reality.
