There are giants in all of our lives, who are out to get us and stop us from succeeding! I am seeking others to join the ranks and go into battle with me against our giants!
Recently I read about going into battle against these giants, and was inspired to form an army.
Giants belittle us, intimidate us, they make us feel weak, unworthy, and insecure. If only we could find strength to stand up to these giants, we could slowly but surely, beat them. One by one, these giants are less threatening. One by one, they can be brought down, and beaten.
Using my favourite ‘tool’ I have come up with a strategy for battle! http://www.passionplanner.com/what-is-it/
First I made a Road Map for this battle. A very important strategic move to enable a viable combat mission. The first leg of the journey is fairly obvious; Identify the Giants. We need to know what we are up against in order to suit up accordingly! By identifying them, we can ascertain which are reliant upon others, thereby enabling cunning tactics for disabling the enemy… Beating one, can cripple another, making the battle that much easier.
The Passion Planner taught me to make a road map like the one above. How to get to where you want to go, broken into do-able steps.
Step 1 I decided, was to ‘Identify My Giants‘.
Step 2 is to Want It More. This is a common step in my roadmaps. Because of it’s common nature – I have learned how to negate this step, by making, and not straying too far from my road map and it is becoming easier! This Giant is being crippled more and more on each journey I make!
Step 3 is to Schedule. If it is written down and given a timeframe, it can be ‘done and dusted’ easily. No time to be overwhelmed, look at how easy it is! Nike! Just Do It!!
Step 4 is to Find Follow Up Buddies, F.U. Buddies. These are citizens of like-mind, to converse with from time to time. These F.U. Buddies are to help me to be accountable along my journey. For me – their main task is to help keep me on track. Sticking to the ‘job-at-hand‘ is a challenge at the best of times!
That reminds me of the hardest part of sticking to the ‘job-at-hand’! Did you notice that the first of my Giants to be identified was the Distractibility Giant?
Too True! I Need A Shirt Like This!
So the next step for me to complete, is to enlist others to join me in the battle against the giants. I hereby invite YOU to Join The Ranks!! Make contact!! The more Follow Up (F.U.) Buddies involved in the battle – the better!
By commenting regarding this post you too can be suited up for battle. Together we can complete our road maps and set out on a campaign. We can strive for victory against our giants, and share in the triumph. Then we can go on, and set another road map for the next journey!
