Can you get outside what you know?

Then I went outside everything I knew…

I have grown immensely in taking MGI “on the road” the last ten years.

If it’s true the first seven years are the formative years in a child’s life then MGI is an adolescent not afraid to take risks. Or better said, MGI is a business traveler seeing the power, growth and possibility in the un-expected. You grow and shed layers when you allow yourself to get lost. When you have to work to find your Dutch bike after registering your business yet again…

Living in three different countries and various US cities this decade has not only shown me how various collectives design their lives, businesses and joys (ask me about the balloon arch in Holland) but how we, yes you and me, can work to design our lives so they enable us to accomplish that which is burning inside us.

Life is good.

Starting with the end in mind…

You hear a lot about beginning with the end in mind. It’s one of the habits of a highly-effective person if I remember correctly…

And it’s true. In life or business, if we work backwards from the legacy we want to leave behind, we can move ~ forward ~ quicker.

Think of your goal; your end.

What are the to-dos, obstacles and support you need. And, in micro-movements starting today, go out and get them or get through them.

Whatever it is that you want in life or business or entrepreneurship, you can have. Life is good.
