Giving this beautiful animal a cuddle was on my to-do list once, but I've done that now!

Hey, look at that. I’ve worked out how to get pretty pictures onto the blog. I dunno about you, but I’m rather impressed. This wordpress thing is pretty awesome.

Anyway, today’s story is about how things in life will, as a given, change from time to time. There are very few constants, as we all know, which does make planning ahead a little difficult at times.

Based on the feedback that we get, one of the most popular parts of our website is the team profiles where we each outline some of the really cool things that we’ve done in the past, and what we want to achieve in the next ten years or so. If you haven’t seen them already, check it out. Inspirational stuff from our team and I can’t wait to see them add to their list of achievements.

I’ve written before about how important it is to write down your goals, add a timeline to them, and then start plotting the steps to make it all happen. However, as time progresses, we can find that what used to be so important is suddenly replaced by something that you’ve developed a greater passion for.

And so, whilst identifying your goals and committing to them is crucial, I also believe that it’s worthwhile reviewing them on a regular basis. Keeping that fire burning, that absolute desire to achieve, is driven by the raw passion towards that outcome (or for some of us, the journey itself). There is no shame to be found in discovering that a goal set last year is no longer as relevant, and keeping those goals updated and in focus will only help with taking the steps to achieve them.

So, I have taken the time recently to review my own goals in light of my changing priorities. Whilst some have stayed the same, others have changed and a few have simply moved up the order as I get closer to getting what I want.

How about you? Have you taken the time to identify what you are working towards? If not, why not? Make it happen, people; we both know that you’re brilliant enough to achieve almost anything, so work out exactly what you want, and when you want it. And then, review it on a regular basis and keep that passion burning. It’s a beautiful thing.
