Life is a Marathon not a sprint

What if all your decisions in life were not based on receiving a positive outcome in the short term but instead the long term? Would your decisions be different? I find that many times in many areas of our life we panic and make decisions based on the sooner outcome. What if we lived like like we pay our mortage? Pay a little every month with the goal of owning the property. Let us invest a little every day, every month to make sure in the end we own our lives.
