Have you ever noticed that a meeting at work takes hardly 3, 21 or 43 minutes, but most of the time precisely as long as it was planned? 15, 30, or 60 minutes! A coincident? I don’t think so.

If you tell yourself you will go to Austria in the next five years, the chances are high you will make it in those five years. You will probably not do it tomorrow, but doing it in 4 to 5 years seems reasonable. But if you really want to go to Austria as soon as possible, the change of your wording changes the time you will be there. I will go to Austria this year! And guess what, you will make it this year. It’s not magic, it’s how life works.

I want a Porsche. I know what I do not want. But I have never set an actual time. I was always kind of afraid about that part of the equation. Committing to a time line makes things more difficult, doesn’t it? It increases the pressure, narrows down the possible cars available, the whole project seems to get just so much more complicated. But as we have already learned, without a time line we will never actually make it. Therefore, finally, after all those years of waiting I have defined the earliest possible time I could get my Porsche. Wrong! I have defined the time when I will get my first Porsche! It will be in early 2024 when the Audi is getting away.

True, it’s still a year and some months away, agreed, but it just makes sense for me to finally get a Porsche. I don’t want to wait any longer. I have been waiting for over 10 years already.

See you next time!
