Productive or not?

Spent some time Satuday on the FranklinCovey site doing their Mission Statement planner thing. Part of the process here for me is to clarify exactly what I want, so I cna go out and get it. The biggest de-motivator for me is that while I kind-of, sort-of know what I’ve wanted, it’s always been sort of vague and therefor unachievable.

Clarify the goals and you can achieve them. Life isn’t like the grocery store – you can’t just go out and get out of debt by buying it off the shelves (despite the ads on late-night TV). You can’t read a book and instantly have more time for your family – you have to apply what you learn.

So I’m clarifying my goals, and building a personal mission statement. Drafting one is really not that hard. 10-15 simple statements that express what you want.

Next, I need to break them down and plan out how to actually do it.

Then for the discipline to achieve them. That’s the hard part, I think.

Something to consider while I’m mowing the lawn.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
