Step 1: Define


Take charge of your future.

The secret of success is to close the gap between where you are now, and where you want to be. 

You define the gap. 

We help you plan and take action to close it. 

There are four things you must bring to the table to begin a conversation:

  • a great "can-do" attitude

  • commitment to asking, "What more can I do?"

  • willingness to work to succeed at each point on the path forward

  • your thoughtful answers to the questions below

Do some deep thinking in a place where you will not be distracted. Think through these questions and be prepared to discuss your answers at our initial meeting. There are no right or wrong answers.

  1. What is your reality now? What do you want your reality to be? This is your gap!

  2. Why do you want to change anything?

  3. What specifically do you want to change?

  4. Is it worth changing? Why?

  5. What specifically are you trying to achieve?

  6. What must change in order to make the changes?

  7. Where must these changes be made? 

  8. Who can make these changes?

  9. Are people in the way of making changes that must be made? Who? Why?

  10. Is the present situation "fair?" Why or why not?

  11. Is the present situation "right?" Why or why not?

  12. Why is this happening now, in this way? How long has it been this way?

  13. Does anyone else see a need for change? Has there been a discussion?

  14. When did you first think you wanted to make a change?

  15. What have you done so far, if anything, to start to make a change?

  16. Are you procrastinating? If so, what are you putting off? Why?

  17. List everything you have tried that succeeded and what you did to succeed on each initiative.

  18. List everything you have tried that failed and why you think each failed.

  19. List things you have thought about trying, but have not. 

  20. Have you talked with others? What have they said?

  21. When you close this gap, what will the new reality look like?

Our first discussions and interactions will be based on your answers to these questions and other questions we ask during our discussions.
