Today's prompt: when it comes to aspirations, it's not about ideas. It's about making ideas happen. What's your next step? - Scott Belsky, Reverb10.
Ack, I have to take more action? Man, I feel like 2010 has been all about action. I've been working towards my goals at a crazy pace and there's a big part of me that would like to coast at least for a month or so before I tackle anything new. Is that wrong?
Alas, no rest for the weary. I will try'n relax a bit while thinking through my goals for 2011. That's how I plan to use my time while at my parents home in Indiana over Christmas. But come January 2nd when I return to Tampa, I will hit the ground running.
When I was home last, I went on a lunch date with my Dad and laid out my 5 year plan with him. As mentioned in a recent previous entry, my Dad is the one I go to for advice on practically everything. He's also great at helping me keep my plans. He pushes me but he also guides me and gives me a leg up when I need it.
I've made several pretty big goals for myself over the next 5 years and a little regretfully, I can't share them with you here - yet. But there are some pretty big tasks I have to accomplish myself to make them a reality so that is what 2011 will be for me - working towards reaching those 5 year goals. Over the next few weeks I'll really have to give myself a dose of my own medicine and think about the sacrifices I need to make now to get me from point A (now) to point B (then).
Prayers and advice welcome over the next couple weeks while I really do some hard self examination and build a game plan.
