Most of the world starts where they’re told, yet 90% of people find it easier to start at the end and go backwards.
Try it yourself.
This also happens to be the same way that Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger look at business and together they’re some of the richest people in the world. How can you look backwards from where you want to be, lay down the trail of how to get there and then follow it back? First think of what you would have done to hit each step, then imagine what you are glad you did in order to do that. Keep working backwards until you get to where you are today. Once you have the map laid out, starting following it.
It’s worth testing.
Try it, and judge for yourself.
