First Reaction/First Glance
Have you ever climbed to the top of a ladder safely only to find you still weren’t high enough or simply didn’t have the right tool with you to fix your problem?
How does this relate to accomplishing your goals or achieving your dreams as you reach for new levels of expectations set by either yourself or your boss?
The Learning Process
How often do we start our ascent towards what we want to accomplish only to find the rungs of the ladder are either loose or even missing?
At this point, you can ask for help from someone who has experience, try to tighten the rungs on your own, or perhaps rush your plan and end up chivvying all the way to the bottom of the ladder only to start over again.
Just like many things in life, a well thought out plan can pay huge dividends and eliminate those wobbly moments or severe slip-ups in life.
Improvement for the Future
Many times in our lives we rush too fast and try too hard, even though our efforts have the best of intentions, only to fall short of our goal.
In fact, we become so overwhelmed that we forget about the talented people we work with who could help us accomplish what we have set out to do.
So the next time you get stuck half way up the ladder, stop and ponder all of the options and seek help from the people who are on your team.
You’ll be surprised at how tall your ladder of success will actually reach.
