In last Thursday’s JAM, I challenged you to take massive action toward one of your personal or professional goals.  How did you do?  I would love to hear from you and learn about your quest. 

Sometimes we need an objective ear to share our quest with; someone who will neither judge us nor coddle us, but rather encourage and challenge us to persevere and keep moving.  Send me a note and share with me what you are striving for, what that first step was and how you felt after taking action.  I will be there for you – to give you a standing ovation, or kick you in the behind – whatever you need. This quote from George Bernard Shaw highlights how you may have felt (or will feel) after taking massive action on a goal important to you: 

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”  – George Bernard Shaw 

Feeling like a force of Nature?  Oh, yeah!
