Get RID of IT

It's been said,

Get_Rid_of_it.png

But I say, if it really matters, get R.I.D. of IT.

What's your IT factor? Everyone has one. Some folks call it their sweet spot, their genius, their DNA (Distinct Natural Ability).

So I ask once more, What's your IT?

With that in mind, I am certain you do not want to get rid of IT, do you?

So by now, you may be open to the possibility that "Get R.I.D. of IT" is plausible, (it just depends on what the acronym R.I.D. means).

Consider the following:

R - Realizing your destiny

I - Identity Revealed

D- Dignity Restored

Do you agree that R.I.D. really matters, then:

Celebrate your Black History

Each one of us can look in the rear view mirror of life and observe a time where things were dark and nothing but God got you out of it. CELEBRATE THAT month (where God commanded the Light to shine out of your darkness).

No matter how dark things get, we can transform our environment with these four words:

As you celebrate your black history month, be vigilant for the energy vampires in your life. Those are people (like Job's "friends") who see you in the dark but instead of providing you positive energy, they suck (deplete) your energy, even more, with blame. Don't fall prey to this energy vampire. But first, don't be one.

RELATIONSHIP

Relationship_with_Life.png

Each year, during the month of November, I usually get a them which goes from my head to my heart and eventually to my feet, where I walk it out in the following year. The theme I heard for 2018 was three words, "What Really Matters."

As I look into the rare view mirror of the past 5+ decades of my life, the thing that matters the most is RELATIONSHIPS. Not the Win, Not the Status, Not the material things. One thing ..... Relationship, with many layers:

  • Relationship with Self
  • Relationship with Loved Ones
  • Relationship with God
  • Relationship with Money
  • Relationship with Challenges
  • Relationship with Stakeholders
  • Relationship with our Enemies

etc

 I can go on and on with that relationship list.

As long as we are alive, I believe it is the vital skill that we must master, and yet, it is the most commonly ignored. You see, our education system teaches us to be good practitioners in our craft (to do the thing right) but it did not equip us, to do the right thing. The latter is all about relationships. 

What's the one tool you are going to apply to build your relationship muscles?

Design Build Your Life

Design Build.jpg

When you hear the phrase, “Design-Build Your Life” what immediately comes to mind?

From an academic and practical perspective a “Design-Build” professional would be someone who studied Architecture and Civil Engineering, or Architecture and Construction Management.

Such a professional is considered empowered. 

What do I mean?

Traditionally, an architect would design the building and then the client would:

(i) Use the construction drawings/document to bid out the project to construction companies

(ii) Select the best or lowest bidder to construct the building - the architect is the client’s representative during this phase to make sure the building is built according to the construction documents.

On the other hand, the design-built professional/company cuts out the middleman and serves as a one-stop shop for the client (often this professional can design and build the project for less than the first option), but also s/he is absorbing 100% liability vs liability distribution in the first option.

As you look at both options, which do you think most people take in the building phase of their lives? Unquestionably, option 1. Why? Two reasons:

(1) They believe that the “subject matter experts” know more about their future than their gut instinct. They architect their way (they start off being inspired) to "write the vision and make it plain," (the blueprint if you will) but then they transfer the construction management of their dreams and vision to the hottest and lowest bidder.

(2) They allow their culture and environment to build, and place a lid, on their lives (regardless of the level of success they have amassed.)

Think of the Great Pioneers (Steve Jobs, Sir Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison, etc) did they pass the baton after the design phase to someone else to steer the ship in the construction (prototyping, product development, building phase)? We all know the answer to that question. A resounding no. They stuck it out with grit and resilience. In the words of the poem, “Invictus,” they were the master of their fate, they were the captain of their soul.

Disclaimer: I am not making a claim for the lone ranger mentality, nor am I suggesting that one should not delegate or form strategic partnerships to support areas of weakness. But what I am suggesting is we ought to never lose the pulse of responsibility and accountability for the design and construction phases of our lives:

  • Professional Life

  • Relational Life

  • Emotional Life

  • Spiritual Life

  • Etc

When I hear the phrase, “Design-Build Your life” I hear, Noah, building the Ark from the design which he received from divine inspiration.

So, like Noah, have you apprehended (embraced) your cause; written your design; found yourself experiencing immense success, but just have not reconciled your success with your divinely inspired cause? If you answered yes to this question, for a limited time, I've decided to offer a sepecial one-on-one 30 Minute "Design Build Your Life" coaching session. During this session we will work together to create a clear vision for the key Design-Build milestones in your life.
