Today’s prompt from Trust30 Challenge from Jenny Blake is to identify the biggest challenge at the moment and turn it in to question to face it and journal all ideas that come up in next 48 hours.
Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?) Write it on a post-it and put it up on your bathroom mirror or the back of your front door. After 48-hours, journal what answers came up for you and be sure to evaluate them.
One of my biggest challenges at this moment and the one that is literally wearing me out is about scaling up. I have been working on a lots of different ideas for some time and have been searching for opportunities to realize them. Thanks to a friend that believed in me and invested on the project last year that became a huge success. And call it snowball effect or just sheer momentum, found opportunities to realize a whole bunch of others. It’s a great news, except some of them demand a timeline that need executing multiple projects in parallel. Not sure how to scale up to leverage these opportunities.
Executed right, it will set us on the right track to get really what I have been dreaming all this time. Failing to deliver, is not an option at this stage. So I am going to frame this challenge in a different perspective, like the prompt suggested, into a question and see if it will change my thought pattern and opens up doors to new answers I couldn’t see before.
Rather than just one question, I would like to try out different questions and see where they will lead me to. Will post the questions that I come up with and answers at the end of 48 hours.
I am glad I accepted this Trust30 Challenge. It really made me think this morning quite differently about my biggest challenge.
