Thank you if you have been following my posts this year. If you have checked in recently you probably know already I led a workshop in January focused on turning goals into reality.
The session reminded me that if you get enough freelancers and 9 to 5 workers together their stories come tumbling out. Their feedback created a snapshot of the world of work in 2016.
They said one of the tougher challenges they faced involved taking the right action and avoiding overwhelm. They were talking about having too few hours each day and too many to do items to handle.
They knew something had to be done. The question was, what to do to get that winning feeling back?
Was starting a new project the answer? Could growing a new professional relationship be a solution? How about keeping going with what already worked?
What Does Success Feel Like?
To help the discussion focus I mentioned Brian Tracy’s principle of starting with the end in mind. Vividly capturing (in words or pictures) what success feels like helps you work out how to achieve it.
Does success involve you creating client-pleasing software which puts a big smile on your customer’s face by offering more results, faster than expected?
Or is your success measured by the strength of the hug you get when you prioritise finishing work in time to pick your partner up from the station?
