How to Dream Big – Why Bother?
Why not bother to learn how to dream big? Some people seem to do it naturally. They have the vision to change a nation, change an industry, or simply change how we interact with information in the palm of our hand. Many of us walk through life keeping our heads looking down on the paths before us. When you learn how to dream big, you are training your mind to look up from the path to see what is ahead. Metaphorically speaking you are now walking through life with vision.
The reason why we may be in a rut is that we are looking down when we should be looking up and looking forward. Dreaming big gives us a large target to aim at reaching. With the right exercises and some coaching, you can then turn that big dream into milestones and achievable steps.

Well, Jerry referenced a “famous” 1979 Harvard study on the impact of setting written goals. There’s a possibility that study never happened, just like the 1953 Yale study before it. However, there are plenty of articles that discuss the importance and value of having clarified, even written goals, and here is one such article that links to other studies. The Harvard MBA Business School Study on Goal Setting from Wanderlust Worker.
