You get what you need

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need…

Mick summed it up for us, right there in the chorus.

Seth pushed us each to look deeper into our goals and get to the “why”.

Crystallizing the “why” not only allowed us to tweak and better define our goals but to determine the ‘need’ behind the ‘want’.

I ‘want’ to build and scale and organization that paints stars on the ceilings of every child cancer ward in the United States but Seth pushed me to learn that I ‘need’ to do this for many other reasons:
a) I need to learn the skills necessary to start, plan, scale and execute this idea to make it a reality.
b) I need to feel the personal satisfaction that, in some small way, I made some painful hours slightly less painful for a lot of children.
c) I need to prove it to myself that I can pull this off, so I can make the jump to larger and more difficult ventures.

For a few years, I’ve known that I ‘want’ to do this but have made very little progress. In a 15 minute discussion, Seth and the rest of the group helped me define what I ‘need’ and as a result, I feel like I am much closer to realizing this goal.

Thanks, Seth. Thanks, group.

And thanks, Mick. Wherever you are.
