2. Get out your compass and map your path: A solid plan, a clear path and knowing where you are will take the guesswork out of where to go, how to get there and how to remove roadblocks. It does a business no good to propel forward aimlessly careening into potholes and sidetracking from the mission. Take serious stock of your assets, your place in business or career and make a serious map. Once you have a comprehensive assessment and plan you can make the decisions that will take you where you want to go.
3. Pick the right fuel to propel yourself forward: Would you light your barbecue with jet fuel, would you use a match to start your car? Of course not. The friction of developing your work and habits into momentum should not dig you deeper into a rut, they should be strong enough to apply pressure to move your forward yet strategic enough to move you forward. Give yourself the positive energy, spark of inspiration, and put enough pressure on yourself to succeed in whatever direction you position yourself in.
