We all have timelines for things. Earning a certification, shedding weight, executing a strategic plan, etc…
Have you ever created a timeline for an objective and later you weren’t aware it needed to change until someone or something brought it to your attention?
That’s what happens when you let your focus fall-back on yourself for too long. You assume since nothing has changed for you that the timeline still works. What about others? What if something has changed for them? Does it move the timeline? What if the objective has been altered? Does it move the timeline.
This is a great exercise for strengthening your ability to keep your focus on others.
