To think too long about doing a thing often becomes its undoing. ~ (Eva Young)
Do you like to focus on getting where you’re going, where you’re headed, what you’re trying to achieve? Do you put your time and energy into achieving your goals, reaching your objectives, getting things done? Are you decisive and quick to act (because the faster you decide, the faster you’ll reach your goal)?
If so perhaps you’re a Destination Life Lens or know someone else who is a Destination, one of the 8 Life Lenses®.
Destination Life Lenses® are known for having no limit to the number of things they’re trying to accomplish and get done. Peer into their brain, back pocket or PDA or and you’ll likely find a number of things they’re aiming for. They’ll look at people who say they have nothing to do with a baffled expression on their face, that situation being unlikely for them. Destination Life Lenses® likely have a well-developed coterie of ways of reaching their goals. They’re interested in services and products that will help them be more efficient, things that will help them achieve what they’re trying to accomplish.
I have a particular colleague in mind who gets excited when she crosses things off her list. I mean really excited. This may sound weird but she even has a certain way to cross things off her list, she crosses it off not once but twice and she checks the item off as well. Cross, cross, check is like a mantra for her. When she cross, cross, checks she feels accomplished. For a moment, she thinks ‘ahhhh, I’ve arrived, I did it’, that is until she’s off to achieving her next goal.
Does my colleague’s example make you want to hide from any so called lists? Does the idea of having clearly defined goals make you want to hurl, knowing planning your next meal is a challenge let alone your life? Do you see life as best experienced as a meandering path versus a straight line (meaning you’ll figure it out alone the way and change things up as you go along)? If so then you may be the opposite of a Destination Life Lens® which is a Journey Life Lens®.
Life Lenses® is an interactive, self-assessment tool designed to identify the invisible lenses that you wear, the lenses that colour your perspective and shape how you see the world. Life Lenses® teaches you how to see yourself, understand others and makes communicating easier than you ever imagined it could be.
The countdown has begun. Life Lenses® will be available online in 8 days.
The global launch is Friday, October 8th in Paris, France.
