In my last BLog-post I wrote about the personal TA career path. Some of us write it by ourselves from the beginning, others start out being led by someone and then take over the steering wheel themselves, while others join-in as a decider later in life.
We all have habits of why we do and act how we act today.
If you are a maximizer, the one who is always looking for something “better” than you are enjoying already, you might tend to block yourself. If it´s you who has permanently trouble finding a B´day gift for your good friend, you might not look at the facts that friend offers but look too far ahead. As a maximizer you lose sight of alternatives and your view isn´t very much realistic. You are always in some future scenery which becomes unreachable once you don´t start deciding. Deciding, means having a goal and focussing on it. It means cutting down 99 alternative to at least three alternatives and then find the best suitable for you.
If you are the person who cannot fully enjoy a sun-set because the event turns you boring real fast, then your outlook ability is collapsing too early. If you can´t look straight to the next weeks and stretch yourself to get there, you block yourself by not staying positive. You will have trouble planning anything.
If you wake up every morning and you can´t wait to get your tasks done and meet your customers, then your outlook ability runs by 100 %. Planning your future depends on how “high” your outlook ability is developed.
Deciders plan their near future because a decision is a strict game plan!
As a decider you do everything single-handedly. You write your script and you perform your next scenes in life. You will reach each of your destinations because it´s your destinations. You won´t see the goals of someone else float away on a strange boat while you remain alone on your island of “no plans”. Every plan you make for yourself stays with you and becomes the land you´ll walk and live on. Therefore you needn´t conquer others people land, instead prepare your own and be a hungry decision maker!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
