Think long term, achieve more

Read the article at <a href="" target="new">Lifehacker.<br /><br />An interesting article by Derek Sivers that explains why thinking of your goals purely in the short term, and trying to pursue too many at the same time, can condemn them to failure. <br /><br />He used the analogy of Burdian’s donkey - who, stood between a bale of hay, and a bucket of water, was unable to make up it’s mind which it wanted first.

The feeling of accomplishment will drive you on to complete more.
