If you ask yourself right now what you did last week that was exceptional, you’ll probably have to think a while. When you establish the asking of the two questions — what did you do last week and what will you do next week — as an integral part of your life, it can change your approach to everything you do. It steadily raises your sights about what you are capable of.
On Tuesday, you may be thinking, “But I haven’t done anything really exceptional yet this week.” This may prompt an inner response, such as, “Then I’d better think of something exceptional to do!” This heightens curiosity about the possibilities for taking new actions. You’ll be more likely to find yourself actively seeking ways to give the world more of your best, instead of just hoping for them.
Although studies indicate that people who regularly think ahead tend to experience more frequent leadership opportunities and career advancement, this mechanism is about something deeper than the external trappings of success. It serves as a reminder that it is up to each of us to keep finding practical and visible ways to leave a meaningful imprint on the world around us and on the lives of the people we care most about.
