“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” – George Bernard Shaw
With 1/6 of the year behind us…
It’s easy to become complacent on some of the bold intentions created for this new year (if, in fact, you designed some).
A lot of good reasons may have started to build as to the difficulty, if not sheer impossibility, of fulfilling on those ideals. Or, maybe the actions toward those goals are just not taking place as excitedly as they began.
Yet, if you’re really up for the “game” of growth and transforming your life, no goal comes without risk or muscles to be developed.
That’s what makes it a game.
One important muscle, as you move into the remaining 5/6 of the year, is to raise your head out of the weeds and 1) remember what you were playing for in the game, 2) assess what has worked and what hasn’t, and 3) implement a revised plan for achieving that goal.
“Reasonabuild” is a natural occurrence when you’re really up to something, because if what you’re taking on is big enough, all the reasons that have stopped you in the past will come up to be overcome.
Getting bigger than the reasons is where the “new you” that you envisioned when coming into the year will show up.
Around what goals, dreams and splendid plans can you tear down your reasonabuild today?
“I tried being reasonable, I didn’t like it.” – Clint Eastwood
