With tomorrow coming at you fast and furiously, you’ve got to have a picture of what tomorrow, next week, and the next year will look like.
You’ve got to think bigger than today.
You’ll need to create a compelling path towards tomorrow that looks enticing. That draws people in. Are you ready to do this?
You better be. That’s what today’s post is all about.
I want to share with you the keys to thinking bigger than today. To craft the vision that will bring people along with you.
Now, let’s do this thing:
Reflect on the past: The first step to thinking bigger than today is to reflect on the past. Take a moment to see where you’ve come from.
The past holds a lot of victories. A lot of defeat. A lot of joy. A lot of pain. A lot of growth.
Seeing where you’ve come reorientates you as you move towards bigger and better things.
Focus on the present: Now look at where you are today. What’s your situation look like?
Is it where you want to be? Is it leading you in the right direction?
What do you need to keep doing to accomplish your goals? What activities do you need to stop doing?
Discover where you’re at today and whether or not you’re moving forward.
Now, look to the future: You know where you’ve been. You know where you’re going. Do you know where you want to go?
You can use your past and present situations to guide you as you discover the future you want to create.
Do you want more of the same or do you want something bigger than today? Do you want to stay where you are or do you want to move forward?
Sit down, schedule time, and think about the future for 30 minutes. See what you come up with.
Write down the ideas you’ve gotten about the future.
You may want to put all the ideas into a mind map, extending out from today.
Order each idea into where it fits in the timeline of your future. Then move onto the next idea and the next.
Create the map that can help you think bigger than today.
You’ll be able to see the paths you need to take to get where you need to go. Let your mind map be your map for your future.
When you’ve got a map of where you’re headed, it’s easier to think more clearly on what steps you need to take. What thoughts need to be bigger. The speed of your implementation.
Create a life map and you can think bigger than today.
PS: This doesn’t mean your life map won’t change. It most likely will. What this helps with is thinking bigger and having direction in your life. Give it a try. I think you’ll like it.
