A Map

A map is only valuable if I know where I want to go, and I’m honest about where I am at.

    Tony Robbins

I heard this on a podcast recently, where Tony was being interviewed and had siri take a note so I’d remember to share it with you.

   What a great quote, about what a great analogy.

I think it’s the mistake that so many folk make these days…

   they’re just following the crowd, living day to day and/or maybe even working a process or a plan, but without the two critical components that Tony says you need to make your map useful:

1. You have to know what you want. This is where Vision, mission and values are so important. Without clarity on these things, we don’t really know where we are going.

2. And, next, and almost as important, you have to be critically honest about where you are at in relation to that goal.

This is why I spend this time of year every year in, first, reflection and then in planning.

   I assess where I am at on the journey towards my Vision and goals, reassess my values and that I’m in synch with them, and then chart my path for the next training evolution along the way.

This process has brought me so much further than I ever would have come; but not as far as I’m going to go!

    And I help my students to do the same.

It’s what my Blackbelt leadership Program is all about!

I look forward to helping YOU on the next leg of your journey next year!

See you soon!
