I’m engaging in some false advertising with this brand. It’s not really about staying vigilant. I mean, staying vigilant is part of it, but it goes beyond that. The real philosophy behind Stay Vigilant is about goals, and not just keeping a watchful eye on them, but acting on them. You have to be ready to act on what your instincts tell you is coming or what you’re going towards.
In my world there are sheep goals and there are wolf goals. Sheep goals aren’t being paid attention to. They’re passive. They’re out in a field, chewing grass with the herd, getting led around by a sheep dog. That doggo is such a good doggo but he’s not working in the best interests of your sheep goals. His objective is to just to keep your sheep goals moving around in circles all day, every day, and then get em all back to the pen at night. They’re going nowhere quickly and eventually they’ll be attacked and killed by others’ wolf goals.
Wolf goals, on the other hand, are the persuers. They’re active. Wolf goals have their eye on their objectives and they figure out how to bite into them and acheive them. If enough thought and strategy has been invested in each wolf goal, then they can been attacked one-by-one. You can adapt your strategies to changing circumstances while your eye is always on the prize.
You always want to be the wolf in any situation. You always need to be ready to pounce on your goals when the time is right. Some wolf goals are nearby your den, and don’t require many steps to achieve, while other wolf goals require a trek across valleys, rivers, and mountains and substatial planning is needed if you want to have any chance of catching them. The great part is, when you break any goal down into enough steps and substeps, the path toward that goal gets clearer and clearer.
In the coming months I’ll continue to lay out the details my methodology so that you can be the wolf of your goals.
