What is your life goal?

I noticed many people in my network are becoming more focused on their life goals. These might include aspirations such as getting a job where their skills are used really well, or finding a home which suits their needs perfectly, moving into unknown or new adventures is a common theme.

Some people are thinking more about how good they want to feel with the acceptance and admiration of others, as we heal some of the emotional cost of separating ourselves to prevent the spread of the virus.

Perhaps the common objective is, 2020 and 2021 has made people more serious about things they wanted to achieve in their lifetime.

Why don’t you ask yourself, your friend or neighbour…. what their big lifetime goal is, you might be surprised that many people have one.

How to activate your response…

Before you jump to conclusions…. I want to talk about group behaviour, and how to become more effective.

Presently we have many restrictions which mean that we have to stand apart when in person.

This doesn’t mean we have to manage all our battles alone. I have worked in care and support for 4 years and retail for 3. Of those periods I have been in a Union for 3.5.

I’m writing from my home in central Bristol where in June the crowd pulled down the Colston statue.

If you want change in your neighbourhoods or at work I strongly recommend you join the relevant Union. For example in the UK Unite and Unison are the leading Unions. But there are many Unions specific to whichever niche you work in.

And lastly, back to the group picture. Its easy for an organisation to ignore a single claimant but when more people add their voice to the table, more can be done to improve conditions at work or in our area.

Ok, I didn’t actually like the statue toppling. Despite agreeing with the many points it represented. I’ve done many career pathway courses and step-up programmes. Not all opportunities are deliberately held out of reach of segments of society, but some opportunities are more difficult to reach out to.

Sajid Jarvid recently inspired me by his example, and I really enjoyed listening to a podcast on The Times online where he spoke about his challenges getting the right education as a son in a family where the expectations were low.

With the right network of encouragement and support anyone can achieve anything anyone can achieve incrementally more than expectations. Like we see with computer algorithms there are some lucky moments where the universe gives us a supercharged boost upwards, although these are not guaranteed.
