Yesterday we talked about building block #2, which is taking time to learn more about an area of interest that is important to you. This can be totally unrelated to how you earn your living.
Building block #3 can go along with this because this one’s all about choosing one or two things you can do today to take you closer to a goal that’s important to you. Not a goal that’s important to your boss or your spouse or kids, but rather a goal that is very important to you.
An example to illustrate how building block #2 and building block #3 can fit nicely together is from my own life. My area of interest is writing and I read books, study other’s writing techniques, take online classes in writing, and I’m a member of a writing group. Currently, each morning I take 15 minutes to work on a lesson from the online writing class I’m taking. This is building block #2.
The goal I have that is important to me is to put together an anthology of my short stories, so each morning I write for 15 minutes, working on a story. This is building block #3. See how building block #2 and building block #3 can fit together? It isn’t essential that they fit but I wanted you to know that they can.
Is there a way that you can fit together building block #2 and building block #3? Think about it and see what you can do.
