I recently finished reading The 4 Disciplines of Execution by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey and Jim Huling, a book required for work. One of the main messages of the book is to define a Wildly Important Goal (also called a WIG, for short) that will help transform your business, bringing it to a new level of excellence. WIGs and their execution (as laid out in the book) can also be applied to one's personal life, according to the authors. The book got me to thinking about the possible WIGs in my professional and personal life. What better time of year to look at one's goals, one's wildly important goals than at the close of one year and the promise of a fresh, new year? I'm glad to have read the book and to now begin defining my WIGs and developing the plan to properly execute them -- charting a new path for the new year.
