It’s quite simple, really. Self-doubt leads to failure. Failure is unacceptable. It doesn’t matter if the ground is shaking under your feet or you find yourself in a bland landscape stretching into eternity, your only hope is to build a sturdy bridge between where you are now, and your bright future. To get there you need a plan. Specifically, a plan for each part of your day. How do you quiet the nagging inner voice which sounds different over coffee than it might at 4 a.m.? Do you have a system in place to forward your agenda? I’m a big believer in the BOLT system. B is for bulls. Their willfulness must be met with conviction. O is for Owls, who buy reluctantly. L is for lambs. T is for tigers. Need I say more?
