The Key to Consistency During Setback

If you are reading this, you have probably taken the time to weigh your Big Rocks and see how you are doing as we are halfway through the year. If you haven’t yet, no problem, you can always go back to read the last letter and weigh your Big Rocks against some of the questions I shared.


After checking your 2022 Big Rocks progress, many of us might feel discouraged because we have not achieved what we planned by this time of year. Of course, this could be because of circumstances outside of our control. Still, we must remember that it is not over. Instead, it is an opportunity to nurture success from despair.

  • Inspire a Shared Vision…cast a vision that connects people
  • Challenge the Process…refuse to accept the status quo
  • Enable Others to Act…empower others to utilize their gifts
