Casting a vision for 2017

Casting a vision for 2017
A vision for where you want your life to head is important. A new year can help bring about change, offer time to reflect and make adjustments on the course you are headed. If there is something about your behavior or habits that you do not like, cast a new vision and work backwards on the steps you need to take to achieve what you want. I always stare into the past this time of year, conversely I look toward the future as well. I do this when it comes to family, business, and relationships. Change is the only constant. I'm looking towards some major improvements on my end. Being a stronger leader for my family and business. Cultivating the culture that I want and making changes on where I prioritize my time and energy. We all have a 100% energy, but how many buckets can we really focus that energy and be excellent in those categories. For me personally, it is 3 buckets: Faith, Family, and Business. That means more time and energy on God, my wife and kids, and growing the business. I challenge anyone reading this to assess where they are at, where there were, and most imporantly where are you going. Monday 12/12/2017 1. Power Snatches 3x3 #145 2. Snatch Pulls 3x3 #175 3.
