On Our Big Hairy Audacious Goals, with Kavita Ahuja

Enjoy this next podcast episode with Kavita, as she speaks about setting Big Hairy Audacious Goals for yourself, which align with your strengths, passions, values – and how much impact you want to make for those you choose to.  Even if you think things are going great – there is always a chance to bring out a blank slate and ask yourself – can I do better?

The all-too-common question: “What do I want to do with the rest of my life?” looms large in our minds. It always seems to be about the DOING – but I challenge you to disrupt this way of thinking. 

What if you were to think about who you want to BE first? Think about it this way: 

“Who you want to BE determines what you will do, and how you will achieve it”

 The only way we can really figure out what we want to do (and how to do it) is to first start with the WHO. Who do you want to be, and why? The answers will come from within if we really stop to ask ourselves deep questions and answer truthfully.

What is your BHAG – your Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal?

Take some time to write down what comes to mind right now for you. Remember, your goals can be as outrageous or audacious as you want – but it is a dream you have for yourself. If you’ve done the work of thinking about your strengths, passions, and values – no doubt this BHAG will align with them.

It should make you feel uncomfortable. As it stands today, to what degree do you think you can achieve your BHAG? Of course, blocks will come up as you think about executing your BHAG. Write those blocks down and ask yourself – what strengths do I possess which will help me achieve this goal?

As we transition in distinct stages of our lives, always remember who you want to BE first. Let your BHAG guide you, and work to uncover all the remarkable things you already have inside of you – that are just waiting to be revealed to the world.

In the meantime, if you are thinking about your BHAG and are at a crossroads in life – maybe thinking about changing your career, moving ahead in your current one, leaving it to start a new venture, retiring to pursue your passions, or doing a combination of all of these – but are confused – reach out to me. I’ve been there, I know how you feel, and I have created a process and am trained to help you find the answers.
