Go big or go home.
We have all heard it, tried it, or failed at it.
Truth be told too many times when you "go big or go home" you often end up at home.
I see it in my office often, people convince themselves that massive success requires massive action.
Instead of taking it one step at a time, they force themselves into unrealistic improvements believing it will get them there faster. This is the tortoise and hare story.
People who have achieved greatness have learned a crucial lesson: take tiny steps.
While taking tiny steps may seem like a passive way to achieve a goal, doing so actually entails sticking to the processes and making the necessary efforts to achieve them.
Most failures are not the result of a lack of willpower or courage, but a lack of consistency.
All these tiny steps are held together by consistency which results in success.
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” —Mark Twain
I am stuck until I change myself. [BLIND SPOT]
Changing your actions and behaviors to change your habits is a deliberate and strategic approach that provides you with the prescription you need to make major changes that will impact you for the rest of your life.
The "Weekly Display" worksheet will guide you through the process of changing your actions and behaviors in order to change your habits.
On this worksheet, you will write in what goal or goals you want to attain at the top of the sheet, then identify activities you can do each day to direct your efforts towards reaching the goal.
These activities could be measured in hours, minutes, miles, pounds, pages read, or any other things that you would like to measure.
Set a goal of how many times per week you would like to perform this activity. Break this small goal into daily activities.
Review your activities each morning and each evening, and log your results.
Be as realistic as possible with the results. This is not to give yourself a grade, it is just to see how you are doing and correct your course if needed.
At the end of the week, summarize your achieved results and compare them to your weekly goal.
Follow up with these questions…what worked well this week, what didn’t work well, and what do I want to focus on next week?
This is a great way to track your progress and hold yourself accountable.
The “Weekly Display” is the best key, I have found, to focus on changing habits and creating new ones.
I would like to challenge you to download it and get started.
Remember, tiny steps consistently over time lead to success.
I cannot wait to hear what you accomplish.
Keep looking for the blind spots and building a better you.
