Just like we had a checklist and a report card for evaluation in kindergarten, as professionals we need a checklist that should simply say “The Future”. During a sales meeting, I asked everyone to write down one or two words that symbolized the future. Each month we took one of these words and concentrated on it. The words written were passion, guts/courage, challenge, life, create, purpose, never idle, death/life, wisdom, honesty, drive, faith and trust, no fear, at peace and knowledge. We, as individuals, need to have a checklist for the future.

 We need a road map that helps us reach our goals and allows us to achieve what others may see as unattainable.

I suggest documenting your checklist and share it with others. It helps us build the right structure. It helps us concentrate on what is important to the entire team. We do not build team concepts and structure by hooking cubicles together, having the same technology and same color that identifies our team. Teams are linked and grow by having a dedication to a common purpose.

I invite you to create your own checklist of words that symbolize your future. Concentrate on the path you want your future to follow and write down those words you need to make that journey a reality.

 People need physical and visual cues to accomplish their challenge and to proceed to future endeavors.


 Share your checklist with me in the comment section below.
