How often do you think about the long-term impact of the choices you make everyday?

Favorite Quotes:

“We spend so much time in our lives trying to get control over things. But we're focusing on the wrong things, in many cases, to get control over.” “If you've ever worried about not being able to create success, or create what it is that you want out of your life, it's because you're not understanding fundamentally the habits, the actions necessary to get you there. ” “Are your habits set up in a way that actually create the future that you want, or are they set up in a way that are actually taking you off course?”
