Do You Make This Fatal Monday Morning Mistake?

When you get to work on a Monday morning are you thinking about your revenue targets for the week, stressing about a project deadline, blinkered by your pending performance-review or overwhelmed by your to-do list?

The Solution That Lies Hidden In Your Head

For the first time ever I’m going to tell you stop thinking about goal-setting… just for a moment!

All too often we focus on where we want to be – we think about the money we want to make, the job we want to be in, the weight we want to lose, or the life we want to lead.  This is all great stuff, however life isn’t only about the future.  When we focus solely on the end result, and the excitement of the goal wears off, the reality can be overwhelming.

The process we go through to get to where we want to be is just as important as the final destination.  And let’s face it, the journey’s the part that takes the most time and effort – so why not start enjoying it?

Stop focusing on the future and ask yourself these 3 questions:-

  1. What’s great about what I’m doing at the moment?
  2. What is one thing I could do today to make my job/life more enjoyable?
  3. What have I already learned or gained from the process so far?

If you job or life is all about the future it’s time to throw some balance into the mix and start enjoying ‘now’.
