The route from aspiration and good intentions, to destination and accomplishment is rarely smooth.
Perhaps its a trick of perception. Big and exciting worthwhile projects can assume a complexity beyond the appetite. It is often easier to default to smaller and consequently less inspiring goals, whereby failure leaves us less scarred!
Lets change this perspective and assume that 6 months equates to one percent of our adult life. Working within the parameters of these one percenters seems more tangible.
What could you accomplish within this one percentage period of your life?
Within 6 months you could meet your life partner, or re ignite your current relationship and indelibly transform your world.
You could drop 8K's of bodyfat (or add!).
You could immerse yourself in the attainment of a new skill or habit.
6 months invested in training for a marathon, or in a martial arts, life drawing class, an accountancy qualification, cooking class, personal development, a new business venture, public speaking, anger management, addiction counselling, authoring a book, travelling to South America, running for local government, writing a song, making a friend or ten, volunteering at a refuge, rebuilding bridges with long lost relatives, or a myriad of other pursuits each and every one of which can be both incredibly empowering and also life changing.
A life is an accumulation of one percent components. A commitment to one or two projects at a time, will over a six month period transform your life utterly. Either way, like the sand in an hourglass time slips away, and the accomplishment of our dreams and goals is dependent on how we use each precious one percent increment.
Dream big and achieve the 'impossible'!!
