This is basically how I see myself in the near future (2-8 years from now). Some of these visions can be achieved in the short term, others in the long term. These visions are what I am aiming for with this project and what I call the BIG GOALS, along with the remaining bucket list items. These visions are the main purpose behind my project, the specific outcomes I want to achieve for each area of my life, why I am doing what I am doing, from now on whenever I refer to the ¨WHY POWER¨ I will be referring to this. This section of the website will serve as a source of motivation to remind me every day how I want my life to be in the near future. The official start date for The Great Growth is Friday 8th December 2017.
