Yesterday you imagined the finish line. You envisioned what wild success would look like. You took a sip of future victory.
Now it’s time to get brutally honest with yourself. No engineer would ever build a bridge having only surveyed the far side. Inspecting the near side—what you’re going to be building from—is just as important.
Where are you today in relationship to your future vision? Don’t pull any punches. The more honest you can be, the more progress you will see.
Leap Task #8: In your Leap Journal, write down a detailed account of where you are now with respect to accomplishing your dream.
Write down the first things that come to mind without too much analysis. Record the hard facts as they stand today—don’t sugar coat anything and don’t give yourself any benefit of the doubt. At the same time, don’t sell yourself short or succumb to false humility. Make an honest and sober appraisal of your current reality.
Be ruthless with yourself. What have you done so far? What resources and support do you have? What obstacles stand before you?
How did today’s task make you feel?
