What do I want to accomplish? It’s a question that I find I’m asking myself a lot more these days. In my desire for more focused action, I find that I need clarity on what the end result to be when deciding what my next steps are.
I find that this question is also helpful when we find ourselves getting angry about something that has happened to us and want those wrongs made right. What do we want to accomplish? Are we looking for an apology, or a solution to fix the problem? These six words can really focus the mind on where we want to go and not leave us stuck in our unhappiness about what has happened.
The next time you have a disagreement with someone, ask yourself the question. What is the end result that you would like to achieve? Do you simply need to feel like you’ve been heard or are there specific actions that need to be taken? Once you’re clear on what you want to accomplish, you’ll have a better idea of the approach you need to take.
This question can also be beneficial in the bigger picture. What do you want to accomplish in the next six months, year, or 30 days? Once you have an idea of where you would like to be, you can start working on a plan to get you there. I know that there was a long time where I only ever thought about what wasn’t working and what I didn’t want and never really gave much attention to what I did want, never mind think about how I could make that a reality.
As we head into the final quarter of 2016, it’s the perfect time to ask yourself what you want to accomplish before the end of the year. Asking the question is the first step. Once you know what you want to achieve, then you can start to develop the plan to make it happen. Of course we can’t stop with the plan; we have to be committed to taking daily action in order to make the things we desire a reality.
Sometimes we want to accomplish a lot of things and we don’t know where to get started. If that sounds like you, I can help! I invite you to take advantage of a complimentary Clarity Strategy session with me so that we can work on helping you identify your key focuses and create a plan so that you can get where you want to go by the end of the year!
