By the time you read this Spring will have sprung and we’ll be heading into Summer. The seasons change year in, year out.
The only constant in our world is change. The climate will continue to change as it has throughout the planet’s existence.
Some change we have to accept because there is nothing we can do about it – seasons, climate, the tide going out and coming in – resistance is futile. Ask King Canute!
The only changes we can choose to make are to do with what we want our life to be about. What do we want to achieve? What legacy do we want to leave to our children, our community or even the planet?
When I coach people this is where we start, gaining clarity on life goals. The stuff that’s so far away that it’s impossible to stay focused on a daily basis. What we can do is work out a strategy – plan the route and choose the vehicle to get us there. We may choose to change our destination and circumstances may dictate varying our route.
If we were meeting three years from today, and you were to look back over those three years to today, what has to have happened during that time for you to feel happy about your progress?
Your progress will be the sum total of all the choices we make and how you chose to react to those changes over which you have no control. Your choices decide your destiny.
