Does the sub-title to this
edition of Footprints and Monuments sound familiar? It does to me in a very
real way. When I was a teenager my dad and I loved to go hunting. We would hunt
whatever animal happened to be in season at the time, and anything else that
moved. Especially snakes, but that is another story.
On one hunting trip my dad and I
were about thirty yards from each other waiting for a particular kind of bird
to fly over. I was ready. My gun was loaded. My mind was focused. I was going
to "out shoot" my dad on this trip. Well, as I was sitting in my
"ready" position I accidentally pulled the gun's trigger. Boom! As my
shotgun let off a great blast I realized that my gun was pointing just a few
feet from where my dad was sitting. Obviously, I fired before I aimed and
almost killed my father in the process.
I see something similar in
people's personal and professional lives all the time. Many get themselves
ready with advanced education, power thoughts, and influential friends, but
they fire before they aim. Aiming is a planning process that takes time and
must be done before you can fire your way into a successful life, organization,
You may ask, "I know how to
get ready, and how to fire, but how do I take aim and then fire?" Or,
"Is this just another goal setting exercise?" No, this is actually an
exercise in life planning. In order to take aim your must know where you want
to go, and what your passion is.
I have listed several questions
below that will spark the creative part of your mind and help you establish
your aim so that you will be able to achieve the kind of life, organization,
and relationships you want.
Life Planning with accurate AIM:
