Having timelines and milestones is important.

When I was studying financial management, we had a question posed to us by our finance lecturer:

When a trader says I made R1 million profit, is it good or bad?

Most of us answered: well it is good, a profit is good.

Turns out the answer depends on the context and milestones.

If a a trader made R1 million profit in 20 years…. it is bad.

But if the same trader made R1 million profit in one day, then it is very good.

Having a vision and dream is important, but without milestones and deadlines, it becomes difficult to move towards realising your them.
