Have you ever watched or/and listened to children count down for something?
Wouldn't you say that they just seem to really enjoy counting down,
especially when it's time to shout BLASTOFF?
Today, I invite you to count down with me the number of weeks left in
the year 2010, shall we try it? 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 , BLASTOFF!
To children and adults there is a shared expectation that something
should happen at blastoff.
What would it be like if on December 31, at 11:59 and 59 seconds
you shouted "Blastoff" to mark the completion of 2010
What goal is outstanding, with intentions to start and
accomplished? Consider those goals that procrastination won the
upper hand by shifting your focus in another direction or maybe your
time was consumed with addictive and non-productive habits. It
very well could have been that you reached your personal limit and would
benefit from being recharged and inspired to commit to the end.
Just do it!
What goal is incomplete,
and in your control? Consider those goals that were started
but were not were completed, perhaps due to boredom, fear, time management
or interest or a mere reluctance to strive for something that you are
not certain you can achieve. Use your authority to make it happen.
What goal is pending
but in someone or something else's control?
Perhaps all that may be needed to clear the way is a telephone call
to inquire about the status of a project, request or tasks. Perhaps
your task requires teamwork, a temporary alliance or a barter of skill
and resources. Ask, and seek for what is needed.
What goal is to
be deferred to 2011? Consider those goals that are trailblazing,
cutting edge and may be a bit head of its’ time. Perhaps more time
is needed and personal and professional development is necessary to
prepare for its’ pursuit or, or maybe spiritual, physical, social
and financial changes enhancements are needed for the goals realization
Be diligent and persevere!
What goal is to
be canceled? Interest or need has diminished; priorities and values
have been reassigned, or perhaps who you are and what you envision as
your future self has been re-defined. Don’t be discouraged, canceling
does not mean failure, it the wind has shifted while you are sailing
the high seas, then your sails will have to adjust accordingly if you
intend to sail on toward your destination or wherever the wind will
take you. Be flexible as you move forward.
Allyson Lewis in her
book The Seven Minute Difference, Small Steps to Big Change says
that pursuing goals related to your personal success will typically
advance you closer to achieving your professional goals. (paraphrased)
Will you prepare to
have a successful, joyous and fulfilling blastoff? Hint! The first
step is re-commitment.
