Career Question: What Can You Do With What You Have Now?

This is a question that you should attempt to answer.  It applies to both your career and your life.  The answer will either surprise or depress you?  FYI–If it’s the latter, you answered it incorrectly.

What you should find is that there are many unexplored opportunities in your workplace, in your business, in your career and in your personal life.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Set aside 10 minutes–no interruptions, no distractions.
  2. Grab a piece of paper and a pen.  Make a list of all of the things you can do with only what you have–your intellect and abilities, your finances, your time, your interests and talents, your education and experience, your personal and professional networks and your personal support structure (friends, family, others).
  3. Don’t edit the list!
  4. Just write for 10 minutes without interruption.
  5. Let it sink in…YOU HAVE LOTS OF POSSIBILITIES…YOU CAN DO TONS WITH WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE.

I’ll be back with with my answers, and some from my coaching clients.
