A few years ago, while touring the Kearl Lake Project in Western Canada, I stood inside the bucket of this Komatsu PC800 with two colleagues – close friends. I couldn’t help but think of the goals I had accomplished in my life – goals the size of this huge bucket! 

Having big goals is, for me at least, like having a kind of bucket list. Do you have goals for 2019 that are as big as a 50 CY bucket? If not, why not? 

Having huge goals brings huge rewards:

  • Set goals that take you way beyond your comfort zone;
  • Focus on the work you need to do — Think of Retired Navy Seal Jocko Willink’s slogan: “GET AFTER IT”;
  • Find the help you need to achieve your goals;
  • Help others meet their goals; 
  • Surround yourself with people who challenge you;
  • Never allow your setbacks to deter you! 

Without big goals in life, how can you really live to your full potential? Just take a stroll through history: Christopher Columbus, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, the Apollo 11 crew and support team, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson. Now those were some BIG GOALS. I’m not trying to get all philosophical on you, but I believe we’re a goal-oriented species. It’s in our DNA!

2019 is almost here! It’s time to get moving.
