Re-evaluating your dreams is not failure to do one thing or be in a career, it’s an intelligent adaptation when you realize that you can invest more for a better life, and that you are investing in yourself and your future.

Downtime is an opportunity for the brain to make sense of what it has recently learned, to surface fundamental unresolved problems. It allows ideas and new projects the space to grow and make better connection.
If you can’t find time for downtime take a look at The Disciplined Pursuit of Less and ask “What is essential?” and eliminate the rest.
The future never shows up—have you noticed?—it’s always today! But playing with it as a working blueprint can be a remarkably useful tool to see things (and how to do and have them) that you never saw before, right now. The most innovative companies are the ones with the biggest goals.
