Beginning with the end in mind seems obvious, but is not always a strategy or tactic that is employed.
This is something that I highly recommend for those wishing to reach their destination utilizing the most direct route and arriving in the least amount of time.
Therefore, simply determine where you want to go (i.e., your desired outcome) before you begin working on your next project. Implementing this strategy is a very productive way to make things happen for yourself.
All the best,
