What is your One Big Thing, that if accomplished, would make your year a huge success?
... And here we are on the edge of 2018, looking towards the beginning of 2019. But before we call it a year, ask yourself the question - how do I want to finish? Because the game is not over yet!
Sometimes we need to break away from the routines and our 'normal' processes. Sometimes we need to escape to new places and locations to find inspiration and rev up our mind to new perspectives, insights and opportunities for massive growth. Sometimes we need to get away and think bigger.
We all have big dreams and aspirations to do great things. And yet, how often do we convince ourselves that "today" is just not the right day to take action? Someday, but not today. How does putting these things off serve us? And what if someday never comes?
We live in a world of constant change. Change which creates a growing number of opportunities and a wide array of challenges. Living in this world of constant change makes it imperative that we are able to tell the difference between what we can and can't control.

Today's world contains so many incredible technologies that can put absolutely anything we could want to see, hear or read one click away.
