This is the perfect time to take inventory of where you are and where you want to be. No matter what has happened up til now, there’s still time to finish this year strong- with intention, purpose, and achievement. The reality is, what we do this last quarter sets us up for the new year, so it's never too late to choose success. Michael Bungay Stanier of Box of Crayons asked 5 simple questions that helped me create insight and focus in just a few minutes. I had to share them with you. Take a couple of minutes and see what these questions create for you.
I’ve shared my answers below and would love to hear yours. Please pass these questions on to those you love. Let’s all set our intention and choose how we finish the year.
1. Nine months gone – that’s enough time to have a child. What’s one project you’ve made progress on so far this year?
(There are 2 key projects I’ve made progress on- #1) Creating order and success in our family through our weekly family business meetings. #2) Creating and soft launching my corporate division-Volition. Full launch coming soon!)
2. What’s surprised you most about the year so far? What’s been unexpected?
(The unexpected surprise for me was being connected and introduced to Michael and the Box of Crayons team. Those relationships have launched me and my company into a really exciting direction. It’s amazing how one person (Thank you, Rich) can open up so much opportunity.)
3. If there was one thing to focus on getting done before the end of the year, what would it be?
(For me it’s more personal growth- increased effectiveness as a leader in my family, in my business, and IN MY LIFE.)
4. Who will you spend more time and attention on in the coming months? Which relationship will you give renewed attention to?
(More time and renewed attention to Stephen, Skylar, and Jayden. As long as those relationships are thriving I will succeed in all other relationships and areas of my life.)
5. Where’s the edge for you? What are you learning?
(The edge for me is fierce courage- more fierce conversations and personal leadership.)
