Flexing the forward thinking muscle has everything to do with creating and living the life you have in mind for yourself. No planning—-no progress…. no measurable progress anyway.
You need the right yardstick to measure progress AND you have to know what you are measuring against. Thermometers, gauges, filters, clocks, knots…………… need criteria before they make sense. The same goes for progress.
One end of your yardstick: your baseline
Take inventory of your life as it stands right now. Who are you? What are you about? What do you bring to the table? There are so many aspects to you and please, consider them all: gender, age, nationality, your body, your mind, your state of mind, your schooling, your experience and expertise in work and life, your friends, your hobbies and skills, and very importantly: your values (what do you treasure above all) and your beliefs (what you stand for).
The other end of your yardstick: your destination
What do you want from your life? What do you want to accomplish? Who do you want to be? What do you want to look back on when you are old and done? Why do you want what you want? How sure are you? Can you describe what you want? Can you smell it, touch it, share it?
The B-line: live your envisioned life
Once the ego feels the solution it starts its own process to conquer.
Your path from now on is visible, focused, geared, guided by whatever you do and however you do that. No more lost efforts, lost times, lost dreams. Everything you do and think is meant to go on the yardstick.
You are invited to join us, to share, and to participate in the discussions this coming Saturday June 11th at 1.30 pm at Uppercase Books and Collectibles in Snohomish.
If Snohomish is too far for you or you would like to form a group like this closer to home, send me an email.
