Ever Wonder why you do what you do?
If you’re like most people I encounter in my Success seminars across the country, you occasionally do what’s easiest before you do what’s really important.
Okay, does it happen more than once in a while? Well, take heart. You aren’t alone, and there is a fix to this.
It’s just a matter of acquiring a new habit. You need to make the conscious choice around how you spend your time.
First, you need to know what matters most to you, what your goals are, and your plans to achieve those goals.
So let’s say you know what you want and now, it’s time to get busy. Each day, you need clear direction on what will get you one step closer to your goal. Only you can determine if your actions are what I call “high-yield activities.”
Here’s an easy test: Are you getting your goodies? If not, you’ve either not fully appreciated what clear goals can do for you, or you don’t know the process for staying focused. If either is the case, go right now and look up “The Power of Purpose.”
Each day, act in ways that reflect your priorities. I suggest beginning each day with some action, however small, that takes you one step closer to your goals. You will be delighted at how quickly your momentum picks up when you start the day off with purposeful choices.
