There's a familiar saying we've all heard before -- follow your dreams.
It is absolute nonsense.
If you follow a dream, you will be following it always, like the receding horizon, like a will-o-wisp. Under no circumstances should you follow your dreams, for dreams are only shadows.
Instead, consider what it is that you dream about, and come up with a practical, goal-driven plan of action that will get you -- or anyone -- there.
Then, follow your own step-by-step achievement instructions, as you would a recipe.
Even a child can do it.
