Some people think of this as the holiday season…
Others also think of it as the “planning season.” The time of year when you start to figure out how you’d like the next year to go…
What you’re going to achieve…
What programs and practices you’re going to kick off…
If this sounds like fun to you, I’d like to offer a little spin in keeping with this very important idea:
Make sure that all – or at any rate, most – of your precious time should be spent in service of things which light up your life.
If you plan from that perspective, no matter what you chose to do, things could turn out…
So watch the video. It’s a short 4’53”…

Can't watch, not mobile compatible. 🙁
Tony – plays well on both my iPhone and android.
I like taking these little “gems” from your videos, Paul. Planning is crucial for any success and I like your idea of clearly naming purpose,passion and obligations. It’s a bit like going though wardrobe of old clothes and throwing away unused tems.
I am doing my list straight away!
Nicki van Eeden says
Great idea and have immediately implemented it.
Andrew Haddleton says
Context – ahh yes such a small change but a massive effect. THat's a really cool notion.
Chris King says
Another super video. You make everything so clear! And, most importantly push me to think and consider my plans of action. Way to go, Paul!
Gerry Brimacombe says
Paul, nothing brand new hear, of course, but I do like the shift in thinking you introduce. I have seen over and over that when I am clear about my intentions, they seem to "accomplish themselves" and also when those intentions line up with what I love to do…then I am ENERGIZED!
Korby Waters says
That was powerful and I am going to use this process today…
Get going! Post back with results… ~pl

“What Do You Really Want”, and “Context Decides Meaning”… Loved This Video Blog… Best To All…
Eduardo Krajewski says
Paul, I agree…. Clarity is key! Love to have you on my team!
Eduardo, it’s great to be on your team. H-Company is going to rock!
Ed Parry says
Thanks Paul. Great video. Looking forward to the next one
Ed Parry says
Another great video by Paul Lemberg. He is the man.
Stewart Kelly says
Love the idea of contextual awareness planning Paul. A mindshift can make all the difference.
Stewart – it’s a great start!
John Klein says
Simple message . . . but lots of thought needed to slay many of the dragons that are lurking around as possible “goals.” In the past, every New Years I make a list of “goals” for the coming year. Last year I listed 12.. Guess how many were achieved this year– zero! I like Paul’s idea of focusing on one main passion / purpose along with obligations. So I’ll try it this way for 2013. Hope it makes the big difference.
John – lots of people’s goals never see daylight because they’re based on “shoulds” and “out-to’s” Basing your goals (and your future) on your passion and purpose changes everything. ~pl
Richard Petrie says
thanks Paul. This is essential for life not just business. How many people know their purpose? No many if any. But it is worth dedicating time to find out.
You’re welcome, Richard. Yes – essential for life. More on finding purpose later…
Awesome Paul. Thanks for the tips.
Mike, you’re welcome
