Do you understand your Next + ?

Do you understand your Next + ?

So your Next is your big, multi-year goal/vision. It’s as big a goal or vision as you can ever dream up.

Super-hero big.

My first Next, at age 50, was a 10-year vision to do everything in life i wanted to do if i only lived to my 60th birthday.

Now, at 60, there’s a new Next.

It’s a three-year Next, taking me to my 63rd birthday.

The + is a wild card, diamond in the rough kind of karma.

It’s an accentuated risk taking commitment.

It’s a burn the ships commitment.

It is helping me process a potentially lucrative contract against the work-focus that will be required.

With only 2.5 years left in this Next, a lucrative deal has to be something that happens in the next few days and something that signals to me that the CEO is burning the ships.

The potential to transform a company and the industry they service is intoxicating.

But, and this is a huge but (no pun intended), 99% CEO commitment won’t work.

What Are You Waiting For?

Next deadline (draft)

My final Super Bowl engagement was Super Bowl 48 in New York/New Jersey. This is part of our team rehearsing (and having some fun).
michelangelo quote
On an office door. .think .differently
quitting
Do want you want to do with your life. It’s your life. Balance is a moving target. You can quit or you can lean into discomfort.

We need starts and we need finishes.

One announces where we are going and why.

The other announces when we have arrived.

My next revolves around key themes:

  • Having fun
  • .thinking .differently
  • Leaning into discomfort

Go.

You have until January 1, 2021.

Two years is enough time, but only if you are focused and committed.
