Are we clear?

Everyone goes through periods in their life when things are a struggle and life just isn’t ‘clear’.
Stop trying to THINK your way to clarity.

If you are struggling or want to improve any part of your life, you must be crystal clear on what you want.

1. Name it

What exactly do you want? (The more detail the better.)

Bonus – get specific on what you do NOT want. (Again, the more detailed the better.)
2. ACT on it. Clarity comes from action, not thought.

You can sit around and think forever and it won’t change a thing except waste your precious life.
Are we clear?

Are we crystal clear that Clarity comes from action, not thought?

I could not resist including an image of Jack’s famous line about being clear.

Go be the best version of yourself by taking action before you are ready and focusing on your progress, not perfection!

The Best Way to Breakup with your Job

You may not be ‘in love with your job’ and want to do something about it. What’s your best way out?

Answer – fall in love with your job.

The best way OUT of your job is to do the job you are currently IN to the best of your ability.

Why?

* It makes time go faster

* You gain new skills

* You may be recognized or even promoted within your current organization
You are not a tree. You can move. You can change.
Ironically, the best way to do that is to “grow where you are planted”.
If you can’t get out of it, get into it.
Go be the best version of yourself by taking action before you are ready and focusing on your progress, not perfection!

Power Tip: Start BEFORE You Are Ready

Why aren’t we living as fully as we can?

What is holding us back?

One “power tip” I’ve recently adopted in my life is the idea of starting BEFORE I am ready. (read: take action regardless of how I ‘feel’).

I’ll always be able to justify delaying for (seemingly) legitimate reasons but, in the final analysis, it’s better to take imperfect action than delayed someday-it-will-be-good-enough action.

(Like this blog post, which I’ve been putting this off for too darn long.)

Perfect?

Nope.

Progress?

Yup.

Think progress, not perfection.
