The big question that was given to our MKMMA class last week was…“ What would the person I intend to become, do next?”
Whoaza! I have spoken to several class members since and know this hit them as much as it hit me…or better said…knocked me over! It’s always comforting to know I am not alone when a doozy like that crosses my path.
What is one to do with a rocket question like that??
It immediately made me sit up taller, physically which was strange in and of itself… but emotionally taller for sure. That reaction was coupled with a stream of thoughts of things I could do…. that was good news I figured because after all these weeks….18 but who is counting? I had better come up with something!
It is like that question woke me to new action and I know I am already an action maker. So what gives? I turned to my trusty old favourites….what could I be doing MORE BETTER DIFFERENT or LESS?
These 4 almost magic words have served me well in the past…both personally and professionally. I use them often when I work with corpoarte leaders, and even personally with people who may get stuck from time to time. Pretty much everything can get put into one of these 4 buckets.
So I found myself filling each bucket in the last few days…with ideas that the person I intend to become would do…..a little MORE of this. A little BETTER with that….A few odds and ends in the DIFFERENT bucket and in fact, I added the most in the LESS bucket.
The question sits with me all day, every day. I have it written on an index card and it stares at me! I made several cards with the same question so I will not be without it…desk, car, bathroom, nightstand. and refrigerator door.
I am happy to share the question with you too…..What would the person you intend to become, do next?
