A year-end message (& new thinking tool)

This is a message and tool from Strategic Coach, that I think you’ll find helpful!
– Randy Wolgemuth

As we leave behind another year, we’d like to offer you a set of principles (and a new thinking tool) designed to keep you focused on making the future bigger than the past, both for yourself and others.

We call these principles “The Laws of Lifetime Growth.”

Growth is a fundamental desire for human beings, and we believe a life of growth is one well-lived and well-spent.

But it’s not always easy to keep growing.

In fact, it’s pretty easy and natural for individuals and organizations to fall into traps that stop them from reaching the next level or even cause them to move backward. The 10 Laws of Lifetime Growth clarify what growth-oriented people do differently to avoid and escape growth traps that stall others.

As you read through them, run these laws through the test of your own experience to see if they ring true.

Then, take some time over the next ten days to complete The Bigger Future Countdown Exercise.

This is a great way to end the year and start the next with positive momentum and renewed energy.

Ask yourself, “When I’ve been growing, have I been doing these things?”

Here are the 10 Laws of Lifetime Growth:

Law #1: Always make your future bigger than your past.
Law #2: Always make your learning greater than your experience.
Law #3: Always make your contribution bigger than your reward.
Law #4: Always make your performance greater than your applause.
Law #5: Always make your gratitude greater than your success.
Law #6: Always make your enjoyment greater than your effort.
Law #7: Always make your cooperation greater than your status.
Law #8: Always make your confidence greater than your comfort.
Law #9: Always make your purpose greater than your money.
Law #10: Always make your questions bigger than your answers.

These ten principles, if followed, will keep you growing throughout your entire life. We’ve used them for many years at Strategic Coach when coaching entrepreneurs, their team members, and their families on how to reach new levels of achievement, meaning, satisfaction, and success—personally and professionally.

We hope you’ll find these principles thought- and action-provoking as you explore what the coming year can bring.

And we encourage you to use The Bigger Future Countdown Exercise to support your Bigger Future mindset into the new year. It contains daily prompts and exercises for ten days, each informed by The Laws of Lifetime Growth.

It’s our gift to you, and we hope it gets you motivated, excited, and focused for 2024!
