The Five Rs of Assessment are one of the single greatest tools to help advance your career, strengthen your relationships, and achieve your dreams.
From there, we start looking a few pages into the future.
Did you ever read the Choose Your Own Adventure books?
The books started on page one. But by page three you’d have to make a decision. Do you jump across the gorge or try to find your way through the valley below?
If you want to jump, turn to page 5.
If you want to explore the valley, turn to page 7.
How many of you weren’t too sure which path to choose? If you were like me, I would jump ahead, while keeping my finger on the page with the original choice.
If I saw that alligators ate me, I went back and chose the other path!
It’s ok to look ahead a few steps in a Choose Your Own Adventure book. Similarly, it’s ok to think about your next few steps in your own life.
But just like it would become too difficult to parse out every path in the book, it becomes too convoluted to think too far ahead regarding every decision in your life.
It can become paralyzing! You might become so obsessed in finding the best, most efficient, perfectly advantageous decision that you never make a decision!
Decision Paralysis is the crusher of dreams!
Ultimately, Explore each of your 3-5 options a few steps ahead, then make a decision from there. By doing this, you keep moving forward. You avoid getting stuck.
You achieve your dreams.
