Clear your mind out for a minute. Don’t think about the Packer’s problems, tomorrow at the office, or tonight’s meatloaf. Don’t even think about the new Burger King commercial.

Empty out all your worries, cares and doubts right out onto the floor. If, for some reason you want them back, they’ll be there waiting for you in a minute or two. For now, though, I only want you to think of the answer to the following question:

Where do you want to be one year from today?

If your answer is “Sitting right where I am, doing exactly what I’m doing, with all the knowledge I’ve currently cornered and owning no more than I currently own.”, you’re stuff is so together you should be writing your own blog. I’d read it, pop it under favorites, and subscribe to your feed on both of our computers.

If, however, you’re like me and have quite a nifty little “wish list”, make this the day you start taking mammoth steps toward your goal(s).

Do you remember the game “Mother May I”? You’d be instructed to take little baby steps, kangaroo leaps, giant steps, or bunny hops. You had to gain permission by asking, “Mother may I?”. First one to make it to the the mother (so to speak) was the winner. Baby steps got you nowhere fast, but giant steps got you there in a hurry….then you got to be the mother. Sweet!

You know what I’m guilty of? Too many danged baby steps. I know where I’m headed, or where I want to be headed at least. But most of the time I take baby steps to get there. If I had been taking giant steps all along, maybe “there” would be in my rearview mirror.

This would be me setting my mind on taking giant steps from here on out.

Make each moment count double,

P.S. What IS wrong with the Packers anyway?
