Long Term Perspective
Perspective has a Latin root meaning to ‘look through’ or to ‘perceive’. It’s a particular way of thinking about something, ordinarily influenced by ones beliefs or experiences. An outlook or point of view.
Long Term Perspective - means to filter our thinking, choices and decisions, through a 'long term' lens. It’s an consistent outlook that says- “how does what I do/ don’t do today impact my future?” Therefore, the habitual practice of constantly aligning our daily walk with our long term goals is created.
But first- we need to get absolutely clear about our long term goals and what we believe we are supposed to achieve within our lifetime. Then, when faced with daily choices- to ‘Do’ or ‘Not Do’ something, we are in a position to ask “Is this choice/ action/ task in line with my ultimate life goals?” also “What are the long term consequences of this decision?” Arguably, if this choice does not bring me closer to my goals, or indeed who I want to be, then why make that particular choice??? Conscious long term perspective provides focus, clarity and a daily alignment filter!!! #perspective
