GO FOR THE “SHOULDS”
ANALYZE THE “IS”
PIN DOWN THE CAUSES
SELECT THE RIGHT SOLUTION”
Zap The Gaps! by Ken Blanchard, page 118
This is really a pretty straightforward action plan for a more attractive future.
You need to identify the future as you vision it to be. Where do you want to end up, by when, with what, and you might even want to toss in why you want what you want. Now that I think of it, the “why” is pretty important if you want to sustain your forward progress.
Next you must recognize the facts as they presently exist. What is the reality of the situation. Where are you today and how did you get here? More importantly, what don’t you like or enjoy about your current situation?
It is now time to figure out how you arrived at today’s press clippings. What went wrong? Why? How? In what order?
After you have a clear picture of what “is” and how it came to be, you simply have to draw up a plan to put an end to your self-debilitating habits and replace them with carefully designed tasks designed to propel you toward the new you.
And that my friends brings us to the end of Zap Your Gaps!
