Actually, every "next four years" will have a significant impact on you. Your actions and decisions during that time will determine everything that follows. And key to making most of time is having a vision, setting goals, and making plans.
Most leaders work with a business plan. And some have a business plan for their career and other important aspects of their life.
3) It can be a lot of fun.
Yes, next four years and rest of your life can be a lot of fun. If you choose to make it so.
My train ride serves as an excellent example of this.
When I bought my train ticket I decided that I was going to enjoy ride. And I can report that I had a ball. In fact, I told everyone that I met on train that I was happiest guy on train.
Now, let's be realistic about this. A train offers some challenges. For example, train rocks from side to side as it rattles along over old track, switches, and rail crossings. The train blows a whistle, which you can hear all day (and night) long. The train provides limited space. I spent first night in coach, curled up on my seat and suitcases that I stacked on floor between my seat and one in front. My sleeper (for next two nights) consisted of a 3.25 feet wide, 7 ft. long, 6.5 ft high space.
And yet I was happiest guy on train. Because I decided to enjoy ride.
Similarly, we can enjoy our ride through life if we decide to enjoy it.
