Firstly, get crystal clear on what you really want by asking the question ‘what would excite me?’ This opens us up to the realm of possibility.
Most people set outcomes by asking ‘what can I achieve safely?’ and this is akin to asking ‘how can I get a new shoelace?’ when you’ve broken one. It’s boring. And how often are you still fiddling with that broken shoelace three weeks later?
Once you know what would excite you it’s time to get clear on WHY it’s a must.
If you saw a $100 bill floating down the river about to go over the Niagara Falls what would you do? You’d wish it well and watch it go over the falls.
If you saw you child floating towards the falls what would you do? Whatever it takes.
When the why is strong enough, the how will reveal itself, and any how is tolerable.
