Having timelines and milestones is important.
When I was studying financial management, we had a question posed to us by our finance lecturer:
When a trader says I made R1 million profit, is it good or bad?
Most of us answered: well it is good, a profit is good.
Turns out the answer depends on the context and milestones.
If a a trader made R1 million profit in 20 years…. it is bad.
But if the same trader made R1 million profit in one day, then it is very good.
Having a vision and dream is important, but without milestones and deadlines, it becomes difficult to move towards realising your them.
