Are you tired of getting marketing messages with an offer to help you solve this issue in your life or improve that area of your life. And the problem is all of the offers seem irresistible because they are crafted so well as they speak to this issue or problem in your life and seemingly provide this oasis of a solution for you. Well, if you’re not careful, you could easily fall into a trap known as the shiny object syndrome, where you end up hopping from one solution to the next thinking it solve that very critical issue in your life.
Today, I’m going to tell you the one thing you can do avoid the shiny object syndrome trap. All you have to do is get clarity on your “PVG” and filter every decision through them. Your PVG is your Purpose, Vision and Goals. Once you have clarity on your Purpose, your reason for being, and you have clarity on your Vision, which is how you will fulfill your Purpose, and you have clarity on your Goals which are all of the incremental steps you need to take now to realize your vision and fulfill you purpose, these 3 things, your PVG, will NOW serve as a guide rail to keep you on track for what matters most.
So, the next time you’re presented with a marketing message and an offer, all you have to do is verify it aligns with your PVG and if it does, then you can say YES to the offer but if it doesn’t you can say No. That’s why the Bible says write the vision and make it plain, making it plain, brings clarity to your PVG and serves as a compass to your decisions.
