Do you know where you are going in life?
Here’s a little secret you may not realise – you don’t need to know.
When a river is flowing from the mountains down to the sea, do you think the water focuses on the ocean, or where it is going next? I feel that way too many personal development workshops get you to focus on the end goal, and I do agree that there is value in that, however on a practical basis, isn’t it more important to know where or what you’re doing next? Do you know what you’re doing for the next 6 hours? How about 24 or 48 hours? Personally I believe it is important to have a direction, however there are many ways to the destination and I think most of us would be happy knowing the next three steps.
A fantastic old skool Texan speaker I once heard named Ed Foreman said that you should focus on having a great day… and then just do that every day because after 7 days, that would be a great week, and after 52 of them, that’s a great year and so on. What I liked about what he said was that we only need to focus on what’s right in front of us, instead of worrying about the week, month, year or longer ahead.
I’m suggesting to you that you only need to know what your next few steps are towards where you’d like to be.
“Enough is as good as a feast.” Many of us aren’t quite ready to declare that we’ve found our purpose in life so focus on the next three steps – so let’s choose something and work out how long it would take to execute it, then do it. A lot of money has been spent on the methodology I’m about to explain, so if that’s anything to go by, this is valuable information. In addition, it has been said that truth is often beautiful hence simple, and these 4 steps are a recipe for harmonious action in your life.
