On wishing

Wishing is important. It tells you what you want from the world, from other people, and lets you know what matters to you. But it doesn't take you any closer to acquiring or accomplishing those things. To expect wishing to bring you what you desire is like trying to tighten a screw with a reciprocating saw: it's a misuse of the tool, doomed to fail. Instead, wish for what you want, study the list, prioritize and choose the things you want to focus on first, and then ACT, using some of the many other—and more appropriate and more effective—tools at your disposal. (Sometimes you may have to work to acquire or develop the tools you need as a necessary first step.)
