“Know the other, know yourself:
One Hundred challenges without danger;
Know not the other and yet know yourself:
One triumph for one defeat;
Know not the other and know not yourself:
Every challenge is certain peril.
Know Nature and know the Situation:
Triumph completely”
Sun Tzu

This initial 3-hour meeting will help bring clarity to your current circumstances. It will help you pick up the pace so you can achieve your goals faster and with less effort.  I will take you through a series of exercises that will help you work backwards from 2025, an extremely powerful strategy. The 2025 strategy teaches the following:
