“How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?”
- Dr. Seuss
Your time, energy, & resources are all finite, which means that you need to be deliberate and intentional about how you choose to spend them. But how do you make that decision? What deserves your attention from the infinite list of choices? If you make a habit of choosing wisely, I believe that you will be rewarded with personal and professional fulfillment, personal achievement, and career success. Choose unwisely and you may be left to feel like our friend Dr. Seuss, wondering how it got so late so soon!
Aligning your actions with your values and goals is the secret. When you assess your choices through that lens, the decisions regarding how you should spend your time, energy, and resources become simple. But what are your values and goals, and how do you articulate them? Left undefined, you might spend your days chasing Shiny Objects, but never really getting ahead.
“When SOS (Shiny Object Syndrome) sets in, it forces you to chase project after project, and change after change, never settling with one option.”
- Jayson DeMers
My Mission and Personal Values drive my decisions and actions, and almost daily they are tested by countless opportunities which demand my time, energy, or resources. For example, the writing, editing, and sending of these emails is time consuming, but because two of my values are Altruism and Creation, the time and energy I spend on this project is not only worthwhile, but also fulfilling.
If all of this is true, how do YOU build a system that allows you not only define your goals and values, but also use them to plot a course towards personal and professional fulfillment? I believe that the Personal & Professional Development Model is the answer, as it is designed to help you reach the sweet spot where your actions are intentional and always directed towards your goals. In short, it provides the opportunity for you to become the best version of yourself.
