If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. ~Lawrence J. Peter
Goals are dreams with deadlines. ~Diana Scharf Hunt
There is no better time to be introspective and set yourself up for success than the end of the calendar year. December offers a light energy, a season of celebration and a promise of miracles. If embraced effectively, this month can be the beginning of a year planned and goals achieved with intention.
The concept of “suddenly”, times when we perceive situations or events coming out of nowhere is one that we should consider. Nature doesn’t happen “suddenly”. We don’t go to sleep to wake up to a tree “suddenly” growing in front of our building. Lottery winners are few and far between and they often lose their sudden winnings quickly!
Here’s a secret- the “edge” that successful people have is the slow and steady. They understand production. Much like Malcolm Gladwell’s concept in “Outliers”, the people who reach outstanding performance levels are those who keep at doing one thing consistently (the 10,000 hours of practice analogy).
Knowing that success is derived from 1) defining and building your desire and 2) consistently doing one “good” thing daily that will result in your reaching your goals….”what are you prepared to do?”
Easier said than done….getting to the core of your “what” requires a bit of “why” work. This first module is about exploration and understanding the “beliefs” that we have been carrying around and how those beliefs have kept us back from achieving. We will also take a look at our recent performance and set a realistic goal for the coming year. Are you ready to analyze logistics while addressing the behavior that, once viewed, will free us to getting to our higher level? Let’s dig in!
