This much obsessing over short-term goals can lead to tunnel vision that ultimately can steer you off course. That spells disaster if you’re trying to knock out a big goal or like me, launching a business.
I haven't perfected this struggle by any means, but here's a few things I'm trying to avoid tunnel vision.
