Do you know what this word means?
It’s the word of the day that well captures what I’m experiencing right now.
Saltigrade is a verb which means, “Moving by leaping.”
In the context of your business or career…
Why move any other way?
Leap after leap
I’ve been experiencing something incredible this year.
For years I’ve been steadily pushing forward on all fronts.
But that’s never been my target.
I target quantum leaps.
That’s been my focus since I was a kid.
Not just how to make your life a little bit better.
But how do you make enormous transformational leaps from where you are right now…
To what you TRULY want?
From here to there in a single bound
Of course things don’t appear to work this way in our world.
Success in your business.
Or otherwise in life most often appears like a steady progression, of course.
Hence we know familiar quotes like, “It took me 20 years to become an overnight success.”
But too, when you drill into the architecture of all achievement…
You see it most often comes back to a small number of the right moves at the right time, in the right ways.
Target these types of “catalyzing events” and…
Rather than seeing your success happening slowly along a linear progression…
You experience step changes.
You were here.
Now you’re there.
That’s quantum leaping
If you know the science of it, you know exactly why it’s called a quantum leap.
With our very very very very basic understanding of how particles operate…
What happens at a quantum level makes ZERO sense to us through the lens of old-school Newtonian physics.
We simply do NOT understand quantum mechanics.
Frankly, it might be outside of our limited brain’s ability to understand non-linear dynamics.
And this is one of the things to be celebrated about science.
Just because we can’t explain it doesn’t mean we dismiss it, but instead formulate theories around it.
How a particle appears to leap from one point in spacetime to another, without any path in between might be a mystery.
But it’s a wonderful map…
For making quantum leaps from where you are to where you dream to be.
That’s because it can convince your brain that you never need to settle for moving slowly, linearly.
Yes, I know to some people this is “unrealistic.”
And that’s all good if they want to crawl rather than walk.
But why walk when you can run?
Why run when you can leap?
Certainly you might enjoy a casual stroll for the joy of it.
But if there’s places you want to get, then you likely want to get here in the fastest and best way.
Why take small steps slowly over the next 43 years?
Focus your energy on how you saltigrade from here to there as quickly as possible.
