“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
Your life is busy. You aren’t spending quality time with your family. You feel like life is going by too quickly.
But how do you make changes? How do you start? It seems too large. Start now, start with that first step on that journey.
I recently met with Peter for coffee, he asked some advice on whether he should take a negotiations course or get more skilled at dealing with difficult employees. Instead of giving him advice, I asked him what his career and life goals were for five years from today. He couldn’t answer me.
Without knowing where he wants to go, I couldn’t recommend either course. They are both good, but without knowing what he wants to do with his life, I had no criteria against which to compare the options.
Peter didn’t know which step to take because he wasn’t sure of the journey.
How can you begin your journey? How can you slow your life down? Decide on what you want your life to be like in five years, write it down. Then you’ll be able to make better decisions. You’ll have a guiding star to help guide your many choices.
