Here are a couple juicy links.
First, here is an interesting post by Steve Pavlina called Graduating College in Three Semesters. I like Steve's focus on the the power of focus. It's an interesting question: What's a goal that has the power to compel and inspire you? I agree with Steve that a great goal - the right goal - can energize and motivate. Here is a nice quote:
"Understand that it’s the compelling goal — the vision — that creates the drive, not the other way around. People don’t normally drive super-fast when they can’t see where they’re going. Speeding in heavy fog is foolish."
The second post is both amusing and dead serious. Jory wrote about breakthroughs and my essay in More Space. The post is quite meaty and includes ways that breakthroughs are like orgasms. Jory is an amazing and colorful writer - her posts are stories that you can't stop reading, so check this one out. A wee snippet:
"Yes, big epiphanies are also big responsibilities. We are called to act on them but also know that we will drag ourselves through discomfort, identity shifts and confrontations with our sanity. We may quit our jobs or tell our mothers we won't be home for the holidays. We may become vegetarian and throw off our spouse. We may look at our business cards and laugh at how hard we fought to get the word "Director" on them. Director of what? Of a construct that means nothing to you."
I am in the mood to make something big happen and so I am immersing myself in the breakthrough conversation. And I can't forget my own advice - communicate your goals. So, I will tell you more about the breakthroughs I seek soon.
