Ok…so let’s say you took my advice over the last few days and thought about where you are and where you want to go in life. And then you looked around and found a couple of people who seem to have made the trip; people whom you might use as guides.
You have three choices:
- Watch your guide and pick one thing they are doing and start doing that. Check your progress occasionally and see if you are heading in the direction you want to go.
- Reverse engineer the situation. Start at the goal, at the bullseye, and then ask, “What is the last thing I’d have to do just before I reach my goal?” and then what is the step before that, and before that, and before that. By backing up, reverse engineering, you eventually get to where you are now. Then, all you have to do is follow the path you’ve laid out to get to the goal.
- Do nothing.
Doing nothing is the easiest thing to do. You keep the status quo (even if you're dissatisfied), you don’t have to have difficult conversations or do things that get you out of your comfort zone.
Doing nothing is what most folks will do.
Is that what you’re going to do?
Have a big weekend. See you Monday.
