If you’ve ever been on a ship or a plane you’ll know and trust that the captain or pilot knows exactly where they are going.
Have you ever asked to speak to the captain to make sure they know where they are going?!
“If you should visit a ship in port and ask the captain for his next port-of-call, he’ll tell you in a single sentence. Even though the captain cannot see his port, his destination, for full 99% of the voyage, he knows it’s there, and barring an unforeseen and highly unlikely catastrophe, he’ll reach it. All he has to do is keep doing certain things every day.
If someone asked you for your next port-of-call, your goal, could you tell him? Is your goal clear and concise in your mind? Do you have it written down? It’s a good idea. We need reminding, reinforcement. If you can get a picture of your goal and stick it to your bathroom mirror, it’s an excellent idea to do so. Thousands of successful people carry their goals written on a card in their wallets or purses.” (Nightingale)
What’s one goal that you’d carry with you as a reminder?
p.s what if your the pilot?
