Dream big in all areas of your life! You’ll be amazed at how you make more progress than you ever imagined!

Hi! I’m Jennie with The Wolek Group in Tulsa, OK!


Each year, as I reflect and review my goals and achievements, I reset my personal and professional GPS and 411. Since I’ve taken the time to get clear on what matters most to me and where I desire to go in the future, it doesn’t take much tweaking.


However, I do love to practice the exercise that first allowed me so much clarity on my WHOLE self. Years ago, after reading The ONE Thing, by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, I utilized the Seven Circles, from page 114 to dream big in ALL of the areas of my life. After journaling in each area, of where I wanted to be 20 years from now, in that area, I then chunked them down into 10 year, 5 year and then 1 year goals. This really helped me build a powerful GPS that then helped to build my 411, both of which are productivity tools:)


Today, I still use the Seven Circles, except now I rate myself on how I’m actually doing in each category. For example, on a scale of 1-10, how am I doing in the “Health” area of my life. I get honest with myself and provide a rating. I’d guess, if you’re like me, you’d always have room for improvement and unlikely not rate yourself as a 10.


So now let’s take this a step further. Let’s say you gave yourself a 6 in an area of your life. You believe you’re doing okay, but definitely see that you could improve. You didn’t give yourself a ZERO, so you know you are making some progress but didn’t give yourself a 10. First, think about what is going well. What are you doing that got you to a 6. Journal it and be proud and self aware of your rating. Now, think about what there still is to do to improve on that 6. Write these items and add them to your 411 or task list for some accountability.


No one is perfect and still we all can take steps each day to be a little bit better. Acknowledge your growth and enjoy the journey. This is a tool to reflect and appreciate your progress. Let me know how it goes!

Don't miss a beat!
