“Since you are alive, all the things is feasible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
What’s in your bucket listing? What’s one factor you actually need to accomplish in your life? Run a marathon? Open your individual enterprise? Go to each state?
I like the quote from Thich Nhat Hanh above (pronounced “Tick-Not-Hahn”) as a result of it makes me consider I can do something. Granted, I’ll by no means play 1st base for the NY Mets, however I dream of visiting each state within the U.S. (I solely have North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Alaska left), and there are different “BHAGs” on my bucket listing.
What’s a BHAG? It’s an acronym for “Huge, Bushy, Audacious Aim.” I first discovered about BHAGs in Jim Collins’ guide, Constructed to Final. BHAGs are objectives that don’t take a day, week, or month to finish. Typically they take years and even a long time. However, remembering the phrases of Thich Nhat Hanh, “all the things is feasible,” we should always all have a minimum of one BHAG on our bucket lists.
Don’t be afraid to have actually BIG objectives. Write them down, give your self sufficient time to finish them, discover good individuals who will assist you alongside the best way (and maintain you accountable), and don’t neglect to benefit from the journey. BHAG!
Thanks for being a part of my journey too.
