It’s been a while…

I’ve been in the throes of several projects and that’s where my attention has been for the past few months BUT we’ve added some folks to our team and that is going to free up some bandwidth so that I can put together more content here for you.

While you’re waiting on new posts, I’ve got a live FREE challenge I’m hosting starting next week that I’d love for you to check out. It’s called The Forge Your Future Challenge and it runs from October 14th to 16th.

You can learn more about this challenge and sign up for it here.

Thanks for following me here on Medium and if you have anything you want to share with me just comment on this post, okay?

If my intention is to read a book then I need to make sure I have a way to give it my attention. That means, for me, to make it a recurring task on my to-do list. For you, it might be something else that works better.

Regardless, in order for your intention to be realized to its fullest… it needs attention.

I know how I’m going to make sure I get any book I choose read – and read well. Do you know how you’re going to do the same with your intentions?

If not, that’s the first thing you need to figure out to actually be productive.

I love the ambiguity of one particular quote from George Carlin. (Leave it to Mr. Carlin to put it out there.)

“Always do whatever’s next.”

The thing is that you have agency to decide what is next. How you get there is up to you.

That’s what I try to teach people – different ways to look at what their “next” can/could be.

Just remember that whatever is next is not always obvious and it isn’t always put in an order that makes sense. It’s up to you to make that decision and hopefully you have a framework in place that makes that decision simpler and better.

If you don’t have a framework in place that does that, then this might just be what you need to forge one.
