Right now, it probably feels like your focus is to make it to December 31st. Then you can go home early, celebrate the new year, and have a day to breathe before going back to work in 2015.
But, what are your plans when you get back?
Many times the new year is filled with resolutions and goals, determined by who we think we should be.
But, what if we started thinking about things differently?
Instead of determining our goals from feelings of obligation, what if we started to ask questions starting with what if?
What if I want to be better than I currently am? What would that take?
What if my staff knew that I was committed to their development? How would the team change?
What if I got the promotion I’ve been working for? How would that benefit my company/career/family/etc.?
Starting with what if gives us the chance to start to dream again.
So, what is your what if question for next year?
