The end of the year brings reflection and review. This is also the time to get ready. Today, I give you a post from my other blog Transition your life, a blog about the ups and downs of change.
The expression Ready, Set, Go is likely an adaptation of the prompt On Your Mark, Get Set, Go used by a variety of racing fields (swimming, running) to prepare their participants for action. We can use the Ready, Set, Go to prepare our day or even our life for upcoming changes.
To be ready we can prepare our tools, equipment, and even our physical being for the upcoming action. We can improve our knowledge on the subject, increase our skills and education. We can prepare our body for the upcoming physical actions or anticipated requirements by eating nutritious and healthy foods.
While getting set means getting on the “mark” in the physical racing world, we can get our brain on the mark, by being in the right mindset. This includes being truly focused on what is before us. By avoiding distracting veins of thought we can be instead set on our upcoming event. We can also actively work to prevent beginning conversations in our minds that get our emotional being unsettled.
The Go part of is the first step on your new path. Take a deep breath and begin. Since you have already done the Ready and the Set it is likely that the Go part will be the easiest.
Getting ready and set are by far the most important parts of making a transition. Be prepared to spend some time and do some work to fulfill the preparation of “Ready” and “Set”.
Have you used Ready, Set, Go in your life transitions?
