As we are getting towards the end of the year I am already thinking about goals I want to set for myself in 2017. I have never set out to have an easy life so I still look to set myself big goals – I set a goal and then multiply it by 10! What does that look like? How do you go about doing this? I have written an article on ‘10 times goals’ to help you do something big in 2017.
I have trawled through the video presentations from Ted.com to bring, what I think, are three of the best ‘talks’ that I hope will move and inspire you this month. Do try and take a few minutes of your time to watch (at least one) of the talks as I am sure you will be pleased you did.
Something happened to me this month which shocked me, set me back and disoriented me. I won’t go into detail other than to say I hope it doesn’t happen to me again – ever! But what it did mean was I now had to focus and concentrate in the days ahead because of my responsibility to others, including my family, colleagues, organisation and the people I support. This article is from my ‘Bettina’s Dad’ series on my blog.
For those who have been reading my leadership pack for many years, you will know one of my hero’s is Sir Ernest Shackleton, the Polar explorer from early in the 20th Century. His expeditions continue to be a source of inspiration. Something I learned from Sir Ernest is ‘SHACKLETON’S WAY OF FINDING THE DETERMINATION TO MOVE FORWARD’ I hope it not only helps you move forward, but also inspire you to do so.
Finally “SIX STEPS TO BOUNCING BACK FROM A MISTAKE (WHAT TO DO WHEN IT’s YOU)” No matter how good you are, let’s face it, we are going to make mistakes (in my experience the only people who don’t are those who do nothing) so having made a few myself I thought I would share with you some great tips from the ILM’s house magazine.
This month’s quotes have been taken from my wife’s @JoyceRaw1 and @livelikearaw twitter feeds – thanks Joyce. I am also on Twitter: @DoshLtd sharing leadership thoughts at 7am, 7 days a week. I welcome new followers!
