What’s Stopping You?

What’s stopping you from achieving your big goal?  Are you even clear about your big goal?  Collins talks about our BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals).  When you strive to identify your BHAG, it pushes you to think big.  It’s an aspiration for the next several years of your career. If you don’t have a BHAG, please take the time to reflect on exactly where you’d like to go in the next decade or so.  Refer to Collins’ writings on the Hedgehog Concept to help you focus—thinking about what you are passionate about and can be the best at.  Covey talks about starting with the end in mind; this is important. It helps you to make decisions,  practice skills, and develop proficiencies necessary to the BHAG achievement. Meanwhile, your dedication to personal growth and achievement towards your BHAG will inspire others with similar passions to join you along the way.  It starts with thoughtful discipline on your part, to point to the destination and map the journey.
