Do you give yourself a hard time for daydreaming?  Stop!  Used effectively daydreaming can actually help you reach your goals. Wikipedia's definition of daydreaming goes like this: "...a short-term detachment from one's immediate surroundings, during which a person's contact with reality is blurred and partially substituted by a visionary fantasy, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and experienced while awake" Sounds good doesn't it?!

Decide who you want to be because when you look around you, there are no guardrails on your life. The reality is that other people try to tell you that only certain things are right. They paint a dull path for you to follow such as go to school, get good grades, have a degree, get a decent job and retire. But who do you want to be?
