Start by identifying your long-term view and ultimate destination.

Where do you sit currently?

Where do you want to go?

How are you going to get there?

After identifying your long-term goal, begin to work backwards.

If you wish to achieve your long-term goal 10 years from today, establish what you will need to have achieved 5 years from today in order to set yourself on a positive trajectory toward achieving your 10 year goal. Furthermore, determine what you will need to have achieved 2 years from today in order to set yourself on a positive trajectory toward achieving your 5 year goal. Continue shortening this time frame until you reach the present day. By creating and adhering to a present day plan, your long-term goal becomes less daunting and more practical to attain.
