I saw this picture from the BeFreeProject and one thought came to my mind, “If amazing means causing wonder or astonishment, what is the opposite of amazing?” Miriam Webster provided the answer: common, customary, mundane, normal, ordinary, typical, unexceptional, unremarkable, usual.
Think on these antonyms for a minute: Do people awe at things you do, places you go, perspectives you share, help you provide? What is most exciting thing you did this year that was of your own making? Have you accepted the plight to be (or remain) un-amazing?
The author of this post states plainly, “If you’re serious about 2015 being a great year then you have to plan for it. Period. Stop wishing and start planning.” Here are a few of her ideas which I support 100% (my notes in black):
Create a dream board/ vision board or a goal list + add action steps. Set goals just like you do at work: what are you going to accomplish each month? each quarter?
Read a book per month (read something that will grow you). Check out what I read daily!
