It is the end of March – 1/4 of 2010 is wrapping up – 3/4 to go.
there is more ahead than behind
the perfect time to make sure you’re on
~ SUCCESS TRACK ~
If you have been playing our success “take the…” challenge this week – you are already thinking about OR have finished creating your current: personal success definition (if not check out Monday’s post then come back, this will make much more sense)
Now is a great time to look at the year and grade your forward momentum. What have you accomplished this year that is moving you toward your personal success definition?
STOP: if you are like most people, as you begin to think of the positive things…. you come up with 2 or 3 things you “should have done” or “didn’t do”. Don’t worry about those things now. This is celebration time – you have 3/4 of the year left to work on all the undone stuff!
Now that you have taken the time to celebrate – you did right? A huge “yeah me” (oh wait… that may be tomorrow’s post).
3/4 Left… What To Do
What a great time to determine what you want to do – for activity – over the next 9 months. For goodness sake if that is enough time to make a baby, it is certainly enough time to work toward YOUR success.
step 1 – identify a couple big destination points on your way to success?
- if we were planning a trip from NYC to LA, perhaps crossing the Mississippi River and then the Rockies
step 2 – what smaller way points will you get from where you are now to success?
- NYC to the Mississippi River driving; if we are pushing it – Columbus OH then onto St Louis MO. Or perhaps we are going to do the meandering roadside oddities trip and break this leg into a week or two stopping as the mood takes us.
step 3 – what are the most important things to keep in mind for this next part of our success journey?
- the trip will be much different if: we have a new puppy along for the ride, it is a bunch of friends on an adventure, or to move our family across the country permanently.
action item: what can you do TODAY, make it little… make it easy… make it fun… then you will want to do something again TOMORROW. So choose action items that help you make it less difficult to create change in your own world.
Goethe is right “Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.”
Know that YOU can make a difference and YOU can create your own success. It is all a matter of taking little actions daily to get there.
