Fit for the future now

Every modification or change you need or want to make in your personal and business life is only ever one quantum leap away.

As you finalise being ready for making 2016 your best year yet, decide where you want to be, personally, and in your working life at the end of 2016, and then work backwards to the quantum leaps you will take in January, February and March. I find beginning with the end in mind and focusing on 90 days at a time is a great formula for long term success.

As you decide the quantum leaps you're going to take, reflect on where the people you live and work with are at. Maybe better alignment with where others are at should be one of your quantum leaps.

Carefully considering any mismatches, and correcting them, is a key to you being fit for the future now.

The following two screenshots are from Mary Meeker's annual Internet Trends. They highlight mismatches between laws and the current economy, and the views of managers and employees. What mismatches could you eliminate in 2016?

As Daniel Pink rightly asserted there's a mismatch between what science knows and business does. Don't make this mistake in your business. Are you up with the latest scientific discoveries and are you applying them in your own way?

I'm sure you've realised that tomorrow never arrives. There's only ever this moment. You can only ever be fit for the future now. 

These great insights from Eileen McDargh may help you. And if you've not yet devoured Eckhart Tolle's great book 'The Power of Now', start there.

A quantum leap is a shift to a different place. And just like a change of heart or a change of mind, can happen in a moment. 

Of course the impact takes longer. And sometimes our world changes while we're in the air! The good news is that how we respond to what happens to us is mostly our decision.

I wish you well on your journey ahead.

Be remarkable.

The best way to predict the future is to create it (now).
Abraham Lincoln or Peter Drucker? Brackets mine.
