When in Doubt, Just “W.I.N.”
W.I.N. - What’s Important Now. A monumental acronym that provides a mental reset and meditative focus.
Deriving from former Football Coach Lou Holtz’s mentorship philosophy and his book “Winning Every Day,” he encouraged those around him to ask this question continuously. Upwards of 35 times a day from the moment you rise ‘til the moment you rest.
I have an occasional tendency to make split decisions that jeopardize both my present wellbeing and/or my long-term goals… And I’m sure I’m not the only one. Writer/Public speaker Brian Willis’ hits home on this and words it better than I ever could:
“The simple act of stopping to ask this question causes us to briefly pause while our mind imagines the impact of the choices we have and almost immediately brings to mind the most desirable choice. When I say most desirable I do not mean the choice that will give us the most immediate gratification. I mean the choice that will have the most positive impact for us in our lives, based on the foreseeable future. This one powerful question allows us to prioritize decisions, choices, actions, and events in our personal and professional lives. The reason What’s Important Now is such a powerful question is that it is about both the present and the future.”
