I’m a prime example of what can happen without a plan. I climbed my way to the top of the corporate ladder and wondered why I was there and why I was so miserable.
I had been coasting without a plan, drifting from island to island, mixing my metaphors and ending up on a sandbank of misery (OK enough of those now). There’s a reason there are mods to add a minimap to Skyrim.
Very few of us stop to take stock of where we are, where we want to be, and how we’re going to get there and yet there’s so much to be gained from doing so. Understanding where you’re most satisfied, what’s not working so well, what resources we have available to us in terms of people, places, things, knowledge, skills, experience and innate gifts and then choosing a clear goal makes it that much more likely to happen.
I often talk about taking 100% responsibility for your life, being the cause of your own reality and everything in it and this is the first step.
Then we plan. Specific actions to enable you to move towards that goal, making use of your resources, setting time frames, making sure they’re achievable. And sure, sometimes a stray gust of wind will blow you off course, but with a map, a plan, you can get right back on it.
Maybe I should have chosen a more nautical theme for the event but hey, this is going to be awesome; 13th August, London, Stop Being Lost – Rediscover Your Path will take you through the process of figuring this all out.
With coaches taking you through and on hand to help, you’ll leave with your own plan of action to get you heading in the right direction, no matter which way the wind blows.
I’m proof. This stuff works and want to share it with you.
