Vision is the "easy" button; This Week's Reading Pile

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU


It makes everything easier. Difficult decisions become less so when you know the destination.

In my 51-years on this planet, people who match their choices with what they want long-term seem the happiest and most successful.

That seems easy right. Know what you want. Make choices to make that happen. But it does bet the question.

Do you really know what you want? Do you have that vision?

Now, on to this week’s reading pile.
