·       04:38– In the survey, it was found that 5% of the polls had no dreams at all.

Three Key Points

1.    If you have a plan, goal, and destination, even though some things may occur that knock you off of your path to that goal or destination, you're probably going to recover your self and revert to your path.

2.    In the survey, the eighth dream amongst the top eight dreams was to continue working in the same field; number seven was pursuing an encore career,something new.. that you haven't done; number six was starting a business; number five was taking care of grandchildren; number four was volunteering; number three was pursuing hobbies; number two was spending more time with family, and number one was traveling.
