“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
– Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Dreaming & imagining are super important. I love envisioning my castle in the air.
What comes next is vital. Once you have the imagining, work backwards and break it into action steps for how to get there.
Be present on each step, and don’t be angry if the route shifts a bit as you progress. Castles in the air are designed to evolve.
Basically, you have a vision for where you’re going, and you also get to revel in the wonder & surprise as your vision presents you with new variations on each step. Best of both worlds!
