In this next video Chris talks about how to get clarity.

Chris said that in order to get clarity, you have to honestly answer four questions:

  • 1. Where have I been?
  • 2. What have I done? (well, marginally, not well)
  • 3. Where am I today? (context today)
  • 4. What is it that I want?

Take a moment to reflect on those four questions. Write a brief summary of your reflection below.

Chris also noted four distinct benefits of clarity:

  • 1. People can say "yes" very quickly.
  • 2. You can say no, but gracefully.
  • 3. Clarity breeds confidence. (Can't be confident in the midst of ambiguity.)
  • 4. Establishes a foundation for longevity.

How have you seen these four benefits working in your context? What areas might you improve on, and how might you do that?
