The last couple of years have been troublesome and difficult for governments, corporations organizations and individuals. It’s during such times that we are forced to reassess rethink and maybe readjust. A word that captures the process very neatly is the word “recalibrate”.

It is a term that has historically been linked to instruments of measurement and commonly used in the engineering world. Calibration is described as the act of checking or adjusting (by comparison with a standard) the accuracy of a measuring instrument.

The term is being adopted more and more to describe the adjustments and changes that need to be made when situations, plans and even thinking is straying off track.

From week to week, day to day or even hour to hour because of “life”, we get off track in small ways or sometimes in spectacular ways. Our eyes are distracted from our goals, our plans get off track and our thinking becomes negative.

This is why we have to recalibrate. Make some adjustments to get back on course. Re-focus and think differently.

The best place to start is to reflect on the good and positive things we have achieved recently and things that we can be thankful for. Reminding ourselves of what we have done, what we have got, what we should be grateful for is one way of recalibrating.

There is a useful form that can be downloaded and used as a tool to help you get back on track. Use it as regularly as you need to so that:

“Things that matter the most will be less likely to be at the mercy of things that matter the least”

My suggestion! Don’t wait until difficult or troublesome times arrive before downloading the form and completing it! If you find it of value to you let me know by contacting me.
