Discover the secrets to setting intentions and big hairy goals that motivate you to achieve success.
Where or how have you felt most alive this week?
Sue’s been blown away by a recent episode of one of the UK’s Continuing Dramas exploring male rape and male suicide – often taboo subjects, both explored with rawness and respect – and drawing true excellence from the whole production team.
Sherry thoroughly enjoyed her weekend with her NCT Tribe (especially the geeky bits!), in particular the sense of ‘coming home’ when spending time with people with similar intentions, values and ambitions. Delighted that On The Tipping Point got a special mention at the conference! (01.40 – 8.50)
How have you been challenged?
This week we talk about setting intentions and big hairy goals! Our big goals are the ones that motivate us to keep going, no matter how scary or daunting they are. There’s something about setting audacious goals that ensures they are energising and challenging and also very personal to us as individuals. No-one’s ever been excited by a SMART goal, right?!
We explore how to set goals and intentions in a way that not only lights our fire, but also helps us to gather personal evidence that we are specifically achieving what we set out to achieve, in a way that keeps us on track with our mission. (08.51 – 36.32)
So where are you building momentum right now?
As we keep saying, momentum is critical in getting past the Tipping Point. Sue has a new online course that has just gone live, a version of the flow challenge, in partnership with CareerCake.com – another alliance with fantastic women who are on a mission to help people take control of their careers! Sherry remains hugely busy with her NCT project and is therefore looking at how to get into consistent and sustainable habits of self care to be fit for the task ahead. (36.33 – 40.30)
How have you been inspired this week?
Sue’s been inspired by some feedback she received to her Advanced Communication Skills course, where someone used one of the techniques she taught on the course to re-visit and clear a negative experience from earlier in their career which had huge impact on their career since. It turned into a powerful reminder that we don’t need to be perfect in what we do to have a life-changing impact.
Sherry shares a TED talk podcast she listened to, by Susan David, about emotional agility. Two quotes in particular resonated: “We own our emotions, not the other way around” and “Our emotions are simply data, we don’t need to allow our emotions to be directive.” (40.31 – 45.12)
What else or what next?
Sue decides she will be more audacious, especially in her mission mapping.
Sherry decides to set a big hairy goal for her business. We’ll feedback in due course! (45.13 – 46.35)
