Time for a quick self-evaluation.  

I know you’re busy, so I’ll keep it short, but think with me here.


1-Where do you WANT/NEED/INTEND to "move the needle" out in the world?

“The world” meaning anything outside of you.

Think of concentric circles, beginning with your inner circle, and moving outward--marriage, family, friends, community, your business, your business' target market, etc.  You don’t need to evaluate all of these areas today--I’m just giving an example of “out in the world”.

2-Where do you WANT/NEED/INTEND to move the needle within YOURSELF?

What types of meaningful changes do you need to be making, personally?

3-How are you doing in these two areas (outer and inner)?

Regardless of where you are, what could be your “next steps” to making progress?

IMPORTANT:  very often we CAN’T make changes in the “world” until we FIRST make changes within ourselves.

We are often limited in the changes that we can make “out there” because of who we are “in here”.

In other words, we may desire to be a catalyst for change and bring about meaningful results “out there” somewhere, but our own limitations--abilities, inner character, etc.--prevent us from pulling this off.

So then, often we need to change who we are, in some way, before we can bring about the changes in the world that we desire.

Think this through.  Ponder it.  Take the week to digest this. You may have an immediate answer to these self-evaluation questions, but after some “percolating”, you may get some deeper answers.

As always, give me a shout here if you have any comments, questions, or you'd like to share how you're doing with this topic.

Stand strong,
