This year I decided to do something radical and get my eye’s checked. For some strange procrastinating reason, I haven’t made my appointment yet. I’m thinking it’s because I’m in major denial. Plus when we first moved to Canada back in 2012, I needed to to do a small vision test when I transferred my Dutch drivers license to my Canadian one and to my surprise I passed with flying colours.
I’ve been aware that my sight just isn’t what it used to be but I’ve been getting by just fine up until now. I’ve always had pretty good vision growing up. My left eye was always a bit stronger at 20:15 and my right eye was normally tested at 20:20.
I’m not sure why I keep procrastinating. Is it just the guy thing where we don’t like going to doctors unless we’re either bleeding to death or have a bone sticking out where it’s not supposed to? Or is it something much more concerning like my eye sight was at least one of my strong suits that I could count on and now it seems to be failing me?
Nevertheless, I know it’s time for a change, glasses or something because I can’t quite make out which boy is mine on the soccer field. I’ve written it down on my 2016 Intention Sheet as one of my big personal “must do’s” for this year.
I’m now working on my Personal Motivation Strategies so I can get some follow through with this intention.
- I’ll appear smarter when I’m presenting or meeting with clients.
- I can get my wife to help me pick out a pair that suits me and hopefully she won’t laugh at.
- I’ll know which kid is my son on the soccer field ( maybe my sons wont be too happy about that?)
- I’ll be able to see minute changes in peoples expressions.
- I’ll be able to read road signs again while driving.
- I’ll be able to see the moguls next time I go skiing.
- I’ll be able to see all those beautiful women with a more refined staring tactic (my wife will be happy about this)
More importantly, I should have done this exercise and gotten whatever prescription I needed as soon as my eye’s weren’t as sharp. I’m still procrastinating and telling myself that I’ll be alright, that glasses will make my eyes weaker and I’ll count on them too much. That once I get them It will lead me down the road of ever increasing dependence on an optician and I hate having to depend on anyone except myself.
Wow, This coach has got some issues he needs to deal with in the vision realm.
I will get it done this year. That is my promise to myself and I like making and keeping personal promises. It makes me feel strong, in control and trustworthy.
What goals and intentions do you have for yourself and your business this year that you might have been putting off?
Make a commitment to do something about it in 2016. See how much further you’ll progress by doing one big thing, one massive improvement this year.
As we move toward 2017, 2018, 2019 and Finally 2020!! You”ll be glad you took care of the big stuff in 2016 that put’s your 20:20 Vision on track for TWENTY-TWENTY 20:20
