So my friend was saying…

that he was worrying about something today and he needed advice. I said, “would you like to be astronaut in 10 years?” He said no, but I think the most realistic thing for stressed out people to do is focus on 10 years, not today, or tomorrow. Immediate changes in your life could result in real results, and real results are confusing. Decide you’re going to get your PhD in 10 years, it only takes 8, so plan on drinking for at least 2 years before then.

Realistic goals are disheartening because they are measurable. I will have to wait 10 years to figure out if my goals are met if I set a goal to be a great painter in 10 years. Pour yourself a shot/12 shots and have yourself some lifetime fantasies. You’ll go so far.
