Everything is a work in progress. From your health to relationships, to making art, the finish line remains elusive because we're always preserving the status quo or making things better. Even democracy is a work in progress.
En Media Res — That's Latin for being in the middle of the action. If inertia is the enemy of action, then we can't afford to sit the good life out.
What's your modus operandi? What're your criteria for a successful future? Is there an ethos you're trying to build for yourself over the next few years?
To stay on track, you need to set goals. Not the ones that invoke jealousy, make you unhappy, enforce you to keep up with others. Chase goals that inspire a way of life, benefit those around you, help develop a sense of purpose, and inspire you to say hell yes despite the burn!
Live by choice, not by chance. Taking control allows one to stay connected to the big picture view. Hold on to your ideas and ideals on how the experience should be and never be afraid to see it through.
