No artist ever set out to sculpt a masterpiece without a vision for the end result.
you can’t just start chipping and expect to create something worthwhile.
Your life is the same.
You are the artist & architect of your life.
You get to decide who you want to be.
Where you want to go.
How you want to get there.
If you don’t envision the end, you will flounder through life with no real purpose and direction.
You will wonder why you aren’t getting the results you want.
Beginning with the end in mind means to imagine a future you.
A 80 year old you, let’s say.
Who do you want surrounding you.
What do you want your home to look like?
What do you want to have accomplished, done, experienced?
What kind of a person do you want to be remembered and known as?
Keeping this in mind you can start to live and conduct yourself with a true path to strive towards.
A sculpture to try and replicate.
Even if you fuck it up a few times.
The end result will be pretty damn close.
Begin With The End In Mind.
