Life is full of obstacles and barriers. Most we do not see coming, others are self-inflicted, and still others are placed on us by society. However, life must still go on in order for us to accomplish our goals. Most of us, however, get stuck when these obstacles occur. It paralyzes us for days, months and sometimes years. We know what we should do, but we just don’t do it. It’s almost like we are living in a perpetual groundhog day. That’s why ThreeFirsts was created.
ThreeFirsts is the brainchild of Peter A. James. He has faced and is facing these barriers that were mentioned above. (You should read a little about his journey on the About page.) From growing up in Brooklyn, NY with a single mom, to paying his way through college, challenges in the military, marriage, divorce, death, and various career changes, he knew that he could not just keep the journey to himself. And by sharing, he is helping.
So welcome to the beginnings of the ThreeFirsts journey. This is where community and accountability begin. This is where you can take note of where you are now and plan to execute. ThreeFirsts exists to assist those who need an accountability partner, those who need a coach, or those who need community in order to help keep themselves accountable to achieve the success as they define. None of us can do it alone – therefore why not become part of ThreeFirsts Nation?
One of the first activities that is required of a ThreeFirsts teammate is to identify what your three-firsts are. By this point, you might not know what we are talking about, but it’s relatively straightforward. The backbone of ThreeFirsts is that every individual should first identify the three most important areas in their lives. These are your three firsts. These are the big three upon which every plan, goal and achievement can be traced back to. If a goal or achievement does not fall in line with these original three, then maybe it should not be a goal or maybe it is time to adjust one or more of your three firsts.
Your three firsts will be revisited regularly on this blog and in this community. Please know that your three firsts most likely will be different than someone else’s. That’s OK. Also know that your three firsts may shift during your life and career. This is OK, too. The important thing is to know that your priorities in life and career are lined up. We’ll discuss this further, but for now – welcome to ThreeFirsts Nation!
