Motivational Monday!

The other day Doug and I ventured out on a long walk through Hoboken to get the lay of the land on foot. If you are unfamiliar with Hoboken, it is simply a one-square-mile grid. At every corner there is essentially either a stoplight or stop sign, so as a pedestrian one has to be aware of who has the right of way. There’s no mindless walking here, you’re always thinking.

What I noticed at one corner, with a stoplight, as we all waited was the pedestrian traffic signals—walk, stop, and the countdown of how many seconds you have until the motor vehicle traffic starts up again. These signals are incredibly helpful! During our long walk we did a lot of sprinting when we saw the clock ticking down so we didn’t have to wait for another full light cycle to walk again. It was helpful AND inspiring.

Wouldn’t it be great if we had signals like this in our life, our work, and our career? Holy smokes, I would love this! Who wouldn’t want a signal that said, GO ALREADY!!! Or equally as important, STOP. NO, this is not the way. And the ticking clock…letting us know time is running out if we don’t act soon! YES, we all need this one, for sure. So today, take a look at your life, your work, and your career and see if you can apply the pedestrian traffic signals. I know we both can apply these helpful signals immediately. And I hope, when we are out and about, we never look at these signals the same way again. They’re powerful reminders!

Let’s GO! WE GOT THIS!
