We were watching “Alone” last night.  Yes, I know.  Really bad TV.  It is a reality show where they dumped 10 men in 10 different places in the middle of nowhere with limited supplies and a satellite phone.  When one had a enough, they called the producers and were taken away.  The last one in the wilderness won $500,000.

The winner made a comment worthy of passing along.  Before the trip, his wife asked him, “what do you want to accomplish?”  He told her that he simply didn’t want to fail.  Then she asked, “Well, what does failure look like to you?”  She asked great questions.  What do you want to accomplish and what does failure (or success) look like TO YOU.  Before you start any big project or initiative in your life, ask yourself those questions.  Answering those questions early in the process will help you reach your goals and let you know when you have reached them.
