People wish they could earn a lot of money, go on vacation, not work so hard, eat without getting fat, be healthy without effort, have luxuries. Wishing you could play in the pool could be as simple as jumping in. But if you wish you knew how to swim, then you’ll need a goal and plan to learn to swim.
