RULE 3

Set your objectives

By defining what you mean by wealth, you now have a destination. Setting your objectives is establishing a timetable to reach that destination. It’s quite simple. If you know you are going to drive to a certain place it makes sense to know:

  • what time you expect to arrive
  • what route you are going to take
  • what you will be doing when you get there.
