The majority of last week was spent focusing on me. Between Team Adrenaline sessions and challenges, trips to the gym, running, hiking and golfing I got in a lot of needed exercise.
In addition to exercise, these are the times I do a lot reflecting. Combine that with two great meetings with old friends in business and I am re-energized and motivated right now.
Being able to envision my future and creating an enjoyable path to get there are what keep me happy and moving forward.
Unrealistic dreams become reality when you can truly envision and can create a realistic plan to achieve them. Hiking 2192 miles straight might seem like one of those unrealistic dreams to most but being able to envision myself at the top of Mt. Katahdin taking my picture has helped me create the plan that will make it happen.
If I am going to sleep 10 hours per night and rest for 4 hours per day that leaves me 10 hours per day to hike and I can travel 20 miles during that time. If I do that for 6 consecutive days and then rest on the 7th day I will need 18 weeks and 2 days to complete the trail. Does that sound more doable to you now? I also figured out that it will only take 1096 hours or less of actual hiking time.
It’s processes like this that I believe help people accomplish big things. However, I see most people just looking at things like this as “too big” or “too scary” and never even trying. The one thing for sure, if you don’t take the first step, you will definitely never get there.
In the Tip of the Week Shelby opens up about her struggles to see that vision of the future. Check it out and see if this helps or if it’s different for you.
Want to explore this more? Join me and other peers tomorrow at 7:30 or 10:00am and again on Thursday at 9:00am eastern standard time as we dig into this and more and try to help each other define and achieve our successes!
Have a great week!
