Sometimes ‘little by little’ does not get you what you need. You sometimes need big steps to position yourself for the big break you need. Here are some ideas;
Root yourself in your mission. Have a clear idea of what you need to do; not wishy washy intentions based on hope or someone.
Engage in right action: Don’t waste time being an ‘’activist’’ mindlessly doing things and just going through the notions. Take action with purpose.
Vie for something that challenges you: Instead of staying in your comfort zone or waiting for circumstances to force you, go for what will challenge you.
Outgrow what no longer works: Plan different learning experiences. What do you need to be better at? How will you become more capable?
Live up to a billing: This is not about showmanship. Its about setting yourself standards and living up to them. What heights should you set yourself?
Understand it’s up to you: It’s so easy to put your faith in everyone and everything else to get to where you want instead of taking responsibility.
Treasure your allies: Some allies may be obvious, others not. But anyone who has your back deserves your honour and support.
Increase your worth: Do something regularly to improve yourself. Make sure you are growing because the world is changing around you.
Organise yourself: Get rid of what drains you; people, and unproductive processes. Have a specific plan to meet your expectations a reality.
Negativity must be a ‘no no’: No complaining and fault-finding. This is hard when you hit the hard places but if you slip into negative mode, who’s going to keep your goals going?
Now take action: What one big change will you implement this year?
