Keep Your Head in the Clouds and Your Feet on the Ground
As I've been thinking about it more, I notice that while I often have my "head in clouds," thinking about big goals, dreams and ideas, and my "feet on the ground," staying grounded in reality, taking practical action and keeping things real, I rarely do these things simultaneously.
You probably find yourself on one end of this spectrum or the other. Some people, like me, go back and forth depending on what's going on in life or how they feel at any given time. However, your ability to create an authentic sense of balance with your goals and actions (dreaming vs. doing), has a lot to do with not only how effective you are in making things happen in life, but also with how much joy and fulfillment you experience.

Keeping your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground is a lot easier said than done. However, when you're able to do both with passion, intention and focus, you create a sense of balance and peace that can allow you to have what you truly want in life.
