five year plans do work. Breaking down your goal into small achievable milestone that lead to the accomplishment of a 5 year goal is the best way to achieve your goals.

Plans for the future are good things to have, despite our current landscape. They give us something to work towards, give us hopes, and upon succeeding with one plan, give us strength to focus on our next plan.
Good advice - do you have any examples of goals you've outlined for yourself that you can share?
