A thought to start the week: “start with the goal”.
Start With The Goal
The brain has different circuits for different types of thinking.
Starting from the bottom and working our way up: Drama Thinking. Problem Thinking. Detail Thinking. Planning Thinking. Vision Thinking.
In the moment, they’re mutually exclusive. So choose carefully. For the thinking in any one of these spheres will strengthen that type of thinking. It’s why thinking about problems only ever finds more problems. We’re strengthening those problem thinking circuits.
So … there’s only ever one place to start with the thinking. The GOAL. Always.
Whether you want to find solutions. Or solve problems. Build on momentum. Or overcome obstacles. Achieve more of something beneficial. Or do less of something detrimental. Always …
Start with the goal.
