Lesson on Goal-Setting From the Cheshire Cat
“Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll ….“`Cheshire Puss,’ [Alice] began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. `Come, it’s pleased so far,’ thought Alice, and she went on. `Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’ `That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat. `I don’t much care where–‘ said Alice. `Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat. `–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,’ Alice added as an explanation. `Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'”You must have a lot of confidence to be around a cat! And what good advice he gives Alice! What the Cheshire Cat is trying to tell her is that she must decide where she wants to go before she can choose a path in getting there. Think about it… A great self-leadership lesson from the famous children’s story.
