Clarity is hard. It takes effort to defined what you are looking for, why you are looking for it, and what you are going to do to get it.
Clarity creates results. It creates momentum. Opportunities appear with knowledge of exactly what you are looking for. Without precise goals you can’t adjust your time and energy to seek out opportunities that align with that vision.
Without a framework to interpret opportunities or situations from it’s hard to say no. It’s hard to choose between opportunities when all the opportunities are better-than-great.
Driving results requires saying no. It requires cutting out the good to make room for the great.
And, sometimes, it means cutting out the nearly-great for the extremely-great.
Create a plan: put pen to paper and create a written description of where you want to go and why in all aspects of your life.
