When someone tells you to “push the boundaries” and “think outside the box” stop assuming you’re in the box trying to get out. Think bigger. Assume you’re already on the outside of the box and it contains your challenge. Push the boundaries to shrink it. Life works better when you act as a leader to minimize problems, not a victim trying to escape.
Here's some thoughts on change in a convenient ebook.
Change is one of those things people want when they don't have it, and dread when they're in the middle of it. Time for Change: A Quick Guide to Manage (Survive) Planned (Sudden) Change, provides a blueprint for anyone planning to do something different or someone who has had something different thrust upon them.
This short guide provides tips and tools to help make any change you're experiencing a little easier and a lot more successful.
Here's a way to help ensure you're using Vision, Action and Passion in your daily life.
List 3-5 things you love to do.
List 3-5 things you do well. (Many people do things well, that they actually dislike doing)
List 2 things that you love to do AND that you do well. (even if you're not currently doing them)
List 3-5 things that support your purpose, or if you're not sure, your organizations mission.
List 2 things that serve the mission AND that you do well.
List 2 things that serve the mission AND you love.
If you had some redundancy that's okay, in fact, it's preferable, because what you want to do is find the activity that simultaneously serves your purpose, you do well, and you love doing. This may come easy to you, or you may struggle. Don't struggle too long, if you need to make a hunch go ahead.
Once you've identified this most lucrative activity, structure your days, weeks and months to do things that most support this. Delegate, or outsource the rest whenever possible.
Some of the best minds create theoretical solutions to insurmountable problems.
It proves little or consequence and achieves nothing of substance.
The ones who take action and responsibility, get things done.
They may not succeed right away, but they assuredly have not failed. The failure are those who see a wrong but do not attempt to fix it, or when they feel inadequate to meet a challenge choose to give up.
Thinking should never be abandoned, but it does occasionally need to be tempered.
We are one quarter through the year. Have you achieved at least 25% of the goal you set for yourself in January? You did set a goal this year, right? Or did you put it off for some reason ... again?
If you'd assess yourself with 9's or 10's in the major areas of your life, don't read any further, you've got this "satisfied-living" thing mastered. However, if there's some dissatisfaction in your world, wouldn't it feel better to get control of it and accomplish at least one great goal this year?
If you think meeting with a coach takes too much time or is too expensive, keep reading because this program will challenge that thinking.
For three years Karl Bimshas Consulting has helped people overcome hurdles that have prevented them from achieving their next level of success. As you know by now, helping people find the aha within is important to me. I have a thirst for making a difference in the life of others by helping them maximize their strengths and continuously improve themselves, their organization or our society.
On April 15, 2012 I'm launching an email only mini-course called, The Goal Factory. It's based on a highly effective process that makes maximum progress in a short amount of time. This 10 part course takes the basic content found in my face-to-face coaching sessions and delivers them to your inbox.
You'll receive thought-provoking questions that lead you to assess what you want to do, have, or be and then learn the specific steps to take to achieve your next great goal. Here's a quick outline:
Introduction of The Goal Factory.
How to find your next Great Goal through Goal Discovery.
Your Life Harmony Audit.
Your Values Finder and How to use your values to guide your vision.
Act with Purpose.
Make Your Great Goal Real.
Your Personal Inventory.
Create a Great Team for High Performance.
Although it makes sense to complete the course chronologically, you can take as much or as little time as you want. There's no hourly fee!
This course doesn't include the direct face to face interaction that my coaching clients typical receive. No one will 'nag' you, so completing the actions in this mini-course are 100% your responsibility. It's also private so there is no iterative approach to solving a problem or deciding on your next course of action.
Those are things you don't get, but what you will receive is the same great core content, at a fraction of the price engaging in an Accountability Partner Agreement would normally cost.
Great results have come through the one-on-one sessions and I'd like as many people as possible to be exposed to the content, but meeting with everyone who is interested in developing their potential even further isn't feasible. That's why I've decided to offer this email mini-course. I've seen too many people defer their dreams because ...
They haven't translated them into goals.
They have too many vague goals.
They don't manage their time or value their personal growth.
They don't feel like they have enough resources to get what they want.
They're afraid of what happens if they succeed.
Those are tragic excuses. Help me turn the tide in how people find, set and get their goals. If this isn't for you at this time, kindly to someone you care about.
You should know, this isn't a risk free opportunity. You might learn something about yourself, which could be exciting or empowering and that experience scares many people.
