In career, business, relationships, and health–in areas large and small–we sometimes struggle to get what we want.
When we struggle, there is often–oddly–one major and overlooked cause: we have not satisfactorily defined what we actually want.
Instead, we act out of habit chasing, at worst, whatever will temporarily relieve the tension or, at best, vague notions of what we really want.
Try this: next time you notice yourself struggling–a little or a lot, at work or at home–take the time and answer the question, ” What do I really want here?” And be willing to be surprised by your answer.
To your continued success,
