Customers — who do you serve and satisfy — how do you get results – life changing experiences — people orientation.
What do customers value — make a difference in others — how get feedback from efforts.
Bottom line — what is the cost of navigating your career as a business – what is the profit for what you do.
Plan for the future – Navigating Life’s Pathways –Traffic Light Strategy
RED — abandon things that do not work
YELLOW — keep things that have promise for the future
GREEN – GO FOR IT – GROW AND GROOM FOR SUCCESS
Additional Thoughts from Dr. Zara Larsen:
You may not get to where you want to go, but you will get to where you need to go – as pulled by those who rely upon you and what the market is calling for.
This is as much a journey with multiple twists and forks and beautiful views along the way.Be wary of being overly goal and objective driven, as you may miss the joy and a real calling along the way.External conditions change, too.
Consider “circles of change” – sometimes you have to go in what appears to be a circle to change a direction.
Be careful of how others impose “shoulds and shouldn’ts” on you – whether intentionally or unintentionally – strike your own path.
There is no greater sin that a person can commit against another than to say “But, you can’t do that”, or “you don’t have what it takes to be …” particularly if the individual is passionate.We all have gifts and motivations that others cannot see.
