"Once we start thinking seriously about the future, we gain enormous power over the future. First, we begin to recognize that we have lots of choices about what sort of future we can shape for ourselves. Second, we can set long term goals and plan effectively so we can reach them. So thinking about the future is a powerful too for achieving long-term success in our careers and other aspects of our lives." ─ Edward Cornish,
