disciplined, not busy

There are only a few days left in January.   How are your BHAGs (big hairy audacious goals) for 2016 looking?

Now could be the perfect time to take a look at three personal clarifying circles we have in our life:

  1. What are you deeply passionate about?
  2. What are you are genetically encoded for—what activities do you feel just “made to do”?
  3. What makes economic sense—what can you make a living at?

Think of the three circles as a personal guidance mechanism. As you navigate the twists and turns of a chaotic world, they act  like a compass. Am I on target?


Do I need to adjust left, up, down, right? If you make an inventory of your activities today, what percentage of your time falls outside the three circles?

If it is more than 50 percent, then a stop doing list might be your most important tool. The question is: Will you stop doing good busy things and start doing great disciplined things?

The choice is yours.
