The Rules

#3 - Propulsion

Propulsion creates a driving force leading to movement. It makes the world go around, makes people achieve the goals and desired dreams. Everything in the world moves because of the nature of propulsion. Where it comes from, that hidden force?

For instance, wind derives its driving force from the pressure difference in two points. Electricity, from the electric potential difference. Sensible heat, from the temperature difference. What about people? What is a driving force for us, human beings?

Here is rule #3: “Our goals and dreams are the propulsion for our actions. Always know your five primary goals.” 1

Without knowing your five goals, you won’t be able to feel the gap, that difference between the present and the future you. If you consider yourself a successful individual, if you are satisfied with your job, status, personal life, it means you’re stagnating. You should always have a plan.2

Write down your five primary goals in the table below. Revisit it later to correct it.
