I have a collection of cards that are meant to be topic stimulators in meetings and I find them great for posts to this blog. The topic this week is: Spirit – Of Adventure & Achievement
What does Spirit – Of adventure & achievement mean to you? To me it means having the spirit to venture forth and try things out, to be willing to have a go at something for the sake of adventure but also for the sense of achievement after that thing is completed. To know that even if you are not fully successful at whatever to the extent of your planned outcome the fact is because you have attempted something, you will have learnt something about yourself and how you managed, and also about that particular thing. You may have heard of the saying that if you aim for nothing you’ll hit it? Well, if you aim for something you might not necessarily reach it, but you will have reached higher than not reaching in the first place. That’s what it’s like to seek an adventure and achieve. We’re all pioneers in some way or another – although some things are far more noticeable to the public than other things. But that shouldn’t matter as long as you know that sense of achievement and can feel satisfaction in having ventured out. So what if someone else has done it before you? The fact is you’ve never done it before and therefore an adventure lies ahead!
In the field of virtual assistance we are all pioneers – the boundaries have not yet been fully defined because it is such a new industry, only a few years old. That means you might hit upon something and how it could be done different to what everyone else has done, or perhaps something new that hasn’t been done… yet. I believe we still have only seen the tip of the iceberg with this industry and there are many exciting things yet to take place. In fact, I know there is because I know of something coming up in the new year. But, I can’t share that yet…….
Anyway, these are my thoughts. Why not share here what your thoughts are on Spirit – Of adventure and achievement?
