- Aspire – wanting to achieve something;
- Act – planning and taking action;
- Adapt – review, identify what works & what doesn’t, learn, plan changes and follow through.
Aspire Act Adapt… three broad descriptive words for disciplines that if logically followed, lead toward achieving success via continuous learning, more or less anything you want that is possible for you, however large the aspiration.
Aspire Act Adapt For Success: The Process Of Achievement
The Aspire Act Adapt website is about the process of figuring out what you want, learning, designing the future, then getting on with it!
- Aspiring is about knowing what you want. Describing it in enough detail to be confident and understanding yourself well enough to be able to make useful decisions.
- Action is about creating and following a plan and staying motivated.
- Adapting is about feedback; investigating what worked, what didn’t and planning accordingly. Then moving on towards getting things done.
Not necessarily in that order…
In addition, it’s about aspects of mindset, awareness, commitment, focus, determination and persistence.
I am Richard B. I’m fascinated by the differences that make a difference, between those who achieve what they truly want and those who don’t.
I reckon most people start out wanting to achieve big things, and the following is often what happens:
- A very small percentage, not always the most qualified, achieve extraordinary outcomes;
- Some set out with great enthusiasm and stop short of what they want, usually well short of achieving what they are capable of;
- Some set goals for themselves way below their capabilities;
- The majority, don’t really figure out what they really want in enough detail… nor why they want it… nor how to get it!
To those who don’t care what they achieve, none of this matters; this might seem a little harsh … but it is true enough.
My greatest pleasure is working with people who care about what they achieve; i.e. those who want to go as far as they can towards achieving whatever their aspirations happen to be.
Around about 1980 I began to be consulted as a mentor and coach while employed within an International Corporation. In 1990 I started working as a facilitator for planning, change, and getting things done… both internally for my employer of the day, and with customers.
Over time I worked with private sector businesses, public sector, sports individuals and teams, music and sports festivals.
Ever since helping other people achieve what they set out towards has been my favourite role:
- In the early days, mostly working face to face:
- Helping individuals and teams get their heads around what they really want to achieve;
- Also helping them figure out what needs to happen for them to get there;
- Inspiring continuous activity and improvement towards their outcomes.
It has been a real privilege … over the years I’ve learned a great deal from my clients, colleagues and friends!
