Jumpstart Your 2007 Ambitions
you asked yourself what your biggest challenges are at work - really
thought deep and hard about them - then developed a plan to address
those challenges? The following excerpt from a recent newsletter
from Tom Peters makes an interesting point. "At a recent London Tom
Peters conference, they asked the audience of some 500 people, most of

Have you asked yourself what your biggest challenges are at work - really thought deep and hard about them - then developed a plan to address those challenges? The following excerpt from a recent newsletter from Tom Peters makes an interesting point.
"At a recent London Tom Peters conference, they asked the audience of some 500 people, most of them business leaders in their own right, to tell them about their biggest current challenges at work. Overwhelmingly, people wrote aboutachieving their ambitions, rather than solving this or that knotty business problem."
When I look for ways to achieve my personal ambitions I reach out to friends, peers in the industry, and attend conferences that address my personal and professional goals. One person who helped me achieve my ambitions was Mark Victor Hansen, pictured here.
Achieve Your Ambitions Checklist:
No matter how many times it is said, people often don't take the time to do this simple task: "Write down your goal and how you plan to achieve it." I was one of those who didn't understand the power of this task until one day I just did it. My current ambitions are now posted on my bathroom mirror and I carry a card in my purse with the goal identified. Keep the list short so it won't overwhelm you and seem insurmountable. Two to three things at a time is realistic.
Decide what you REALLY want to do. This is not what your family, friends, spouse, parents want you to do, but what YOU want. It is hard to set goals when you are not sure what it is that you are most passionate about first. For me, being a speaker and mentor are the two things I love most. A friend asked me to identify why these are so important to me. This was a hard task. By thinking things through and writing it down, the reasons came to me. They were generated from a deep desire to help others become better performers and have higher self-esteem. I was sexually abused, the first time at 6 years old. When you look inside, what you want to do most is likely driven by your desire to contribute to others having a better life.
Read, read, read! I read books about climbing Mount Everest, exploring Antarctica, and crossing deserts. I loved "Into Thin Air", "Shackleton's Way" and "Icebound". These types of books open your mind into the possibilities achievable if you passionately want something enough.
Additional Ambition Resources:
As my good friend Michael Callahan shared with me,
"Make it a great day today. Say something startlingly affectionate to someone you care about."
