They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions and, of course, I’d intended to do everything prescribed for the mastermind course, and in fine form and plenty of time to beat deadlines. They told us it would take a about an hour a week — but I think they neglected to add… “after you get your rhythm down.” And there’s a lot of rhythm to get down. Thank goodness the course is 26 weeks, for in that time I’m confident I will develop my rhythm and turn it into the life-long habits it needs to be, that I’m sure all truly successful people integrate into their lives — particularly busy lives.
I didn’t know what to expect when I started, and admit I was very skeptical. Were it not for the particular individual who private messaged me and said “Kelvin, you need to look at this; it changed my life…” I most assuredly would not have given it a moment’s thought. However, mid-way through the first webinar I was convinced that I was where I needed to be; and I intend to go the distance.
I’ve completed the core requirements to keep my scholarship. I am pleased to have submitted my DMP (definite major purpose) on time — I’ve been working on that for quite some time, but still hadn’t found the formula that “keeps my fire burning hot.” Having to cut *it* down to a mere 400 words was quite the exercise — much like the last column I submitted to a magazine that asked for 400 words, but I apparently forgot to watch the word count. “Shall I cut this down for you, or would you prefer to do that?” Sobering question for a writer.
So my DMP is under 400 words, by my own hand. But, I’m looking forward to the guidance that helps me mold it into the power tool it needs to be. There is something that drives me — but it’s playing hide and seek, and I’ve yet to fully identify it. I am looking forward to that moment when it and I are fully face to face.
