This quote by Steven Covey is a great way to start anything – whether it is something short-term like a weekend fishing trip or a long-haul journey around Australia. But it is especially empowering for your farm business journey .
What is your goal, or the ‘end’ that you hope to achieve? Even for a short-term goal like the weekend fishing trip, the ‘end’ may be very different for different people.

Whatever the goal, and whether this is stated or not, this will shape the decisions you make in preparation for your ‘journey’, the choices you make along the way, and how you feel about the final outcome.
