Traditional goal setting techniques not quite cutting it for you? Maybe it’s time to get STUPID.
The dust of the typical New Year chaos has finally started to settle… into the sudden realization that OMG how the heck did it get to be APRIL ALREADY?! I’m totally with you there.
Not to worry though, as we move into this next quarter you can still rekindle that spark for those goals and resolutions you set at the start of the year. But how?
Have you ever come across a great quote at just the right time?
You know – that phrase or concept you read somewhere that served up the perfect wording on a silver platter and fed you a healthy portion of encouragement, inspiration or a good butt-kicking at the EXACT moment you needed it?
To me a good quote can be like that first morning hit of caffeine. EYE OPENING. One minute you’re drifting around in a bit of a fog, and the next thing you know you’ve been jolted into a whole new level of awareness. Suddenly your thinking is different, and sometimes your entire world can be forever changed in that instant.
Epiphanies are funny things.
You may think of an epiphany as a sudden flash of intuition, a striking perception, an illuminating discovery or realization that happens in a single eureka moment of human brilliance. Wondrous things epiphanies! Oh they flash and strike and illumine all right – just not always as we might expect. Sometimes an epiphany might happen in an instant; but sometimes the epiphany gets planted as a seed and then takes its own sweet time to germinate its way into full bloom. At least this has been my experience.
