Be Your Future Self Now

When was the last time you watched a movie that was so mesmerizing that you lost track of time and where you were?

Like a good concert, when the movie ended, you were a little sad that it had to come to an end.

I had those same feelings this past weekend when I read “Be Your Future Self Now” by Benjamin Hardy, PhD. Thanks, Ben for this transformative work. I love it.

As I was reading this book, I first considered how I could apply its principles to my life and my future. Yes, I have work to do, as do all of us. However, as I continued to think about the content, I realized that I could also apply it to how I work with my clients in my coaching practice. You see, the same principles apply to every business or organization.

Here are my takeaways and how you can apply them to your business.

✅Get connected to your future self.
·         Develop clarity of your organization’s future and visualize it through a vivid vision document.
✅Don’t be driven by the past. Let your future pull you forward.
·         Resist the temptation to forecast from today forward; instead, put a stake in the ground at your future goal and work backward from there.
✅Get clarity around your contextual purpose.
·         Why are we in this business to begin with? How are we helping mankind or the world?
✅What are the 3 priorities of focus?
·         No more than 3 key priorities that are essential to achieve your future and embody your purpose
·         Detail those priorities with sprint lane milestones – for clarity.

If you haven’t read this book, get yourself a copy and read it this weekend. You will be glad you did.
