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.
