Investing to create a compelling future

We know from Stephen Covey that “Everything happens twice, once in our mind and once in reality”.

We are smart enough to know that in order to create a compelling
future, we need to first design it. Most of us, of course are busy
talking about the past and what happened with other people rather than
thinking about the future.

you spent discussing your past and what was the amount of time you
spent thinking about your future?

and, here are two questions: If you continue to spend your time in the
above ratio, would you be moving towards your dream future? What are the chances?
