You’ve Got This

It is helpful every once in a while to reinforce confidence in your strengths and talents. You have gotten yourself this far and are fully capable of getting where you want to go.

Take a moment to inventory your capabilities and affirm all that you have already accomplished. Then, take that confidence and go forth!

What Payoff Are You Going For?

A well-known quote from Lucius Annaeus Seneca says “Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.” One way to establish the aim (and wind) to carry you forward is to identify what you hope to gain from your work in 2019. Are you looking for a promotion, satisfaction, monetary compensation, building skills, growth, being of service to others?

Ask yourself “What payoff am I going for this year?” In doing so, you will firmly set your aim and your plans will carry forward.

Intentional Outcomes

The best way to get where you want to be involves combining goals and action. Start with identifying the outcomes you want to achieve and then, set a strong intention to get there. Your strong intention fuels your actions.

Creating a strong intention involves planning, identifying the steps you need to take, persistence and discipline. Before you know it, you will be there.

What is a goal that you have? Decide what you need to do, set your strong intention and get into action!

What’s The Point?

Every once in a while it is good to ask, “What’s The Point?” You can ask this question about a number of things – your career, the amount of time you put into your work, your goals or the way you are living your life. In doing so, you re-center and check up on the alignment of your life with what you want to accomplish and be.

How does your answer to this question measure up? Are you where you want to be? Are you moving forward? Hopefully you are. If not, you now have what you need to change direction.
