What matters now

what matters nowThe end of the year is always a good time for reflection and thinking ahead. I often find the period over the Christmas and New Year break a time to do a bit of reading of inspirational and thought provoking material, so today I was pleased to discover a free e-book online titled “What Matters Now” that contains contributions from more than seventy extraordinary authors and thinkers, including some of today’s most popular authors, speakers, entrepreneurs and bloggers.

It’s designed to make you sit up and think, to change your new year’s resolutions, to foster some difficult conversations with your team. Each of the author’s has contributed a page of thought, some in bullet points, some in prose.

Must confess, the page that captured my imagination and has me pondering is the contribution titled “Momentum” from Dave Ramsey illustrated below. It captures three essential ideas for me when thinking about the future and what matters – 1. it’s all about focus, hard work and commitment, 2. we must be prepared to devote time to what matters, and 3 – there’s more to it all than just us and our finite ideas and resources!.
