Already 26 days into the new year, man how time fly’s.
Have you still been watching the game of life from the sidelines waiting for your big break? If so here is what you can do.
What you don’t measure you can’t accomplish.
This was a huge lesson for me in life when I first heard it from the $50 billion dollar man Dan Pena. His hard nose approach to life and business success will definitely wake you up and maybe even offend most. His speeches are filled with foul language but he makes great points during his talks.
Do you remember having that god awful progress report in grade school? The one that came between report cards. Mine was usually filled with C’s, D’s and an occasional F.
When your parents saw that what typically happened. “You better get those grades up or no more going outside. Some of my friends would be grounded until the report card came out and they studied every single night until they got that grade up. Others even got whoopings.
That progress report is sometimes what we need for ourselves especially if you are an aspiring artists or entrepreneurs. A daily checklist will help keep you on task which will inch you to your goals.
Like Les Brown says, inch by inch its a cinch, yard by yard it get pretty hard.
Get those little wins in your business or on your craft everyday can have a compounding effect in as little as 30, 60, 90 days. Just see the results of what you can accomplish.
Secondly is to immerse yourself as much as possible around people who are better than you.
I only know one of these guys personally but for the others, I invested in myself and bought their books, Cd’s and seminars, took copious notes and started applying what they were teaching.
Start where you are.
There will never be a perfect time to start to implement your plans, so start right now with what you have and go.
Perfection is over rated and hard work is under rated.
Even if you are working smarter then that means you should be able to work that much harder on hitting your targets. If you don’t have everything you need, get creative.
I want to create on online live stream music show with hundreds of thousands of live views to my website. To do it the way I truly want to will take money and resources I do not have in my possession yet. But I have so much more value to offer in the mean time to build my audience and make my name known in the market place so when that time does come I will already have alot of the leg work of brand building, great working relationships and fans in place.
How can you take action today and move one step closer to your dreams, goals and aspirations?
So to recap,
1.What you don’t measure you can’t accomplish. Set a goal make a plan set up a checklist and get stuff done. Even if you don’t get it all done make adjustments as you go along you will see much clearer as you progress and make the adjustments.
2. Surround yourself with Mentors and positive role models. You will get better just by being around them and listening.
3. Start where you are. No one ever accomplished anything worthwhile waiting.
