The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People -  BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND
It’s very easy in a daily routine to get caught up in an activity trap, for this is very important to start with a clear destination in mind. In this way, the path that we’re taking is going to lead us to the right direction.
To do so, we have to identify our personal values, or write new ones, that will guide us through all the process.
Starting with the end in mind will ensure you that you’re not committing too much on a patch or career that doesn’t fits you, and will save you time.
Ask yourself “What am I trying to accomplish? And how far I would be willing to go to get it?” Know your limits and your possibilities. It is also very important to identify your life-center, the source of your security, guidance, wisdom and power. Our centers affect us fundamentally, determining our daily decisions, actions and interpretation of events.
