Dreams tell us life is worth living. Without hope from dreams we don’t have the persistence to finish what we start, the balls to finish what we find scary and hard.
So why not live like you’ll accomplish your dreams? Don’t have an attitude of “I’ll give it my best shot for 3 years, and if it doesn’t work out, I guess it wasn’t meant to be!”, have an attitude of being buried doing what you enjoy, where you enjoy doing it.
Subjugating your long-term fulfillment for your short-term euphoria is a recipe for disaster, but don’t think it will be too hard.
Determine your goals, and the plans required to reach them. Starting now is important.
