Stop occasionally and think long term. You’ll each have more problems, projects and positions in your career that you will take on.
What is my personal WHY?
What contributions will I be most invested in as a difference maker?
What does success look like at the end?
What benefit will come to those who related with and invested with you?
Thinking long term sets you on a path worth pursuing. Thinking short term drags us into repeating the same year of experience over and over again.
Don’t wait for New Years Eve to make some hokey resolution to hope for what you’ve determined success looks like in the end. Purposefully develop and refine the habits and the actions that will actually take you on that applied learning journey to where it is you have aimed.
“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life.” — Steve Jobs —
