Question Our Hearts to Finish Strong in 2018

We entered 2018 with the  intent to achieve the highest and most beneficial outcomes on a personal, interpersonal, and organizational levels.  We work hard to get to those outcomes and we have 85 days and approximately 6 hours left to fulfill on our commitments.  Let’s finish strong. 

Take out our journals, vision boards, and lists of resolutions and goals.  It’s time for a heart to heart with ourselves. 

On a blank sheet of paper, answer the following questions: 

*What matters most to me? What do I want? What do I need?  We often find we want a lot and need much less.  Our wants also seem to be more for immediate, short-term pleasures like wanting and eating ice creams. 

*What will have the greatest positive impact on myself and others?  We are prioritizing the answers to the first question and will select 1-3 items to complete by 12/31/18.

*Who are my partners, teachers/mentors, coaches, and supporters?  They are my Tribe.  Have I given them access to me to help me? How will they be enriched by helping me?  Call a tribal meeting today.  Share your selected items, what the impact will be if they are accomplished, and how the Tribe can help.

*What bold actions can I take in the next week that align with and get me closer to my desired outcomes?  Bold means something beyond your ordinary actions.  Research and talking about what I want don’t qualify.  Each Sunday write those bold action items down.  3-5 bullet point items are fine.  (The limit reduces overwhelm and procrastination.) Text or email copies of the bold actions to my Tribe and provide a weekly update via call, text, email.  Identify milestones for October, November, and December.  Also identify rewards for reaching milestones that align with habits that support your commitment.

I am in the race too.   My two items are to facilitate The Aspiring Leadership Workshop and to complete the Domestic Violence Awareness Project, “She Is Someone’s Daughter.”  Specifically, I am designing and delivering a leadership workshop for 10 participants.  I am selling 100 Domestic Violence Awareness t-shirts,  collecting and distributing over 500 purses during the December holiday to survivors and service providers,  and  am hosting an intimate community awareness event.  I  joined Emem Washington’s Finished Strong Mastermind -2018 Facebook group, I have my closeknit tribe of 20 years, and I have work family and others who are inspired and invested.  I am energized and motivated.

On our marks, get set, go!

I’m running the race with you and cheering you on! Let’s finish strong.
