Ready for Change then Move, Go, Begin, Start, Andalae

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”–Walt Disney

When you begin the journey of changing your life. Many talk a good game, but few start the actual mission. Get off your butt today and let’s get moving.

happy, prayer, freedom

Baby steps to begin will help you gain momentum. Always have forward momentum. You will have struggles, own it! Just get moving.

Fear, doubt, all that will dissipate if you merely get moving. Start taking steps. Organize yourself, don’t confuse activity with productivity.

Use a calendar, task management tools to organize yourself. Track hour-to-hour your path. Leave time every day at least one FULL hour for your own growth. Do something that brings new knowledge.

Being Your Best, How to Get Started NOW

“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better, and your better is best.”–St Jerome

Say that five times really fast! Ha Ha!

When I found this quote, it really hit me. In our journies, we strive to be our best. Those with passion seem to never rest in the pursuit.

What we learn along the way is forward momentum keeps our vision in sight of our goal. Whether you take a baby step today and a giant step tomorrow, it doesn’t really matter as long as the motion is forward.

Organize, calendar, tasks

Learning to organize your day into bite-size chunks will help. Get a calendar that you like to work with. Organize activities that you can begin and finish within an allotted period. This keeps you from getting to scattered. Activity vs. Productivity. We want production!

Map out a day from hour-to-hour. Don’t wing this get organized. If you do, success is coming. Being busy is just being busy. Have clear and actionable tasks, complete the work before moving on. This is the difference between winning and status quo.

Start today, now if possible. Procrastination is what other people do!

Why the Next 10 Years of Motivations Will Smash the Last 10

“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”–Bradley Whitford

Are you ready to smash the next 10 years? 

The last ten years of motivations that you have employed in your life. Has set a foundation for you to smash the next ten years.

Why?

Think about what you’ve learned from your experiences. What in hindsight would you have done a bit different? This gives you the edge you need to have a breakaway new decade.

happy, prayer, motivation

After a decade you now possess the knowledge to plot the course for a new decade. More important than anything else what bit of experience can you deploy right now? Take some action today!

Upon reflection of your past ten years, take the independent powerhouse thoughts, information, feelings, and put those in your repertoire to draw wisdom at will. Now think about what new information you can put into action to boost the old knowledge. What tweaks can you make?

Set a plan. A daily actionable plan. Some examples:

  1. Use a task management tool. I use Google Tasks.
  2. Calander times to work on you, goals, free time. Literally set up times and dates for your life (I’m not suggesting to not be spontaneous). Organize!
  3. Set time limits to achieve certain things. Don’t wake up a year from now and go “wow I got nothing completed.” Never confuse activity with productivity!!!
  4. Meditate on the end result. See yourself in your mind’s eye with what you desire to achieve as already yours.
  5. Stay in faith and stay in gratitude always!

When trials and tribulations come and they will. Hold onto #5 with everything that is you. Don’t give in or give up. The tests will pass much quicker if you remain calm and focused. Breathe daily and meditate.

Take some action today, get started. Don’t think, begin!

Steps toward Success

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful”.– Albert Schweitzer

Forward motion is what we want. Taking steps every day towards our success. It’s not a question of giant steps or baby steps it’s moving forward. Of course, it is advisable to take as big action as you can every day. The more forward progress made, the less the distance to our final success destination is.

to do list, success, self help

Let’s take a look at what our day can look like, how tracking hour-to-hour our day. You will be amazed at what you can get done:

Example

8:00 AM to 9:00 AM
Review to-do list, get coffee out of the way, review emails and voicemails.

9:00 AM to 9:30 AM

Take 30 minutes to work on something that moves you closer to success, example if it’s a business venture what can you do that will advance that project. Perhaps it’s your children, taking time to spend with them that is meaningful to the child. Busy parents learn to be present at the moment with a child. Put away the cell phone, and truly experience something with your child. Hop on a game with them, get out in the backyard and watch birds, do something that is outside the norm. Fill 30 minutes with focused achievement.

9:30 AM to 10:30 AM

See what you can do by yourself for a solid hour of nothing but focused achievement. What this might look like, is working on your business plan, marketing plan. Fine-tuning your message.

Perhaps it’s taking one hour to focus on your garden again it’s what you are looking for that gives you that feeling of success. This is focused time, without interruption. That means no phones, no email and focused on the task at hand.

STOP HERE

Exercise time! Woohoo…

Okay, what I want you to do here is to stop what you’re doing. I wish you if not right now, no more than 24 hours from now. Take one hour and fill it with nothing but production. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the cell phone and no emails. During this hour this is focused without interruption.
  2. Pick a task that has meaning. Do not CONFUSE activity with productivity! In the end, their needs to be some measurable result from this exercise.
  3. This can be something with family, for yourself, work, it just does not matter. What I want you to learn from this is how much you can actually get done in 1 hours time. A prime example to ponder, if you were Oprah Winfrey’s TV producer, you have to fill one hour with engaging content that keeps millions of people glued to the TV. A daunting task, but her team did it effectively for years. One hour! Think about that for a moment.
  4. This exercise is important. Don’t just keep reading, stop and do this!

WELCOME BACK

For those that did this exercise great job. Filling 1 hour with nothing but productivity is hard. The take away here is “don’t confuse activity with productivity”!  

A quick note. Do the exercises, you can read this book but doing the activities will make a change. Take the steps!

Have a well-defined action plan. Working in steps will keep you from feeling overwhelmed. Many failures occurred because someone was ill-prepared and became overwhelmed. Clouding good judgment. 

Goal Set Now What

It’s easy to set a goal it’s a whole other thing to bring it to life. You set yourself a great goal now what are you prepared to do?

“The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda.”–John C. Maxwell

goal setting, success, agenda

Without action, a goal is just a dream as the cliche says. Here are some tips to get your goals energized:

  • Set realistic expectations. I want to make a million dollars this year, and you have $100 in the bank. Think about it!
  • Take some measurable action daily.
  • Don’t overwhelm yourself with too many tasks or too many goals that you can’t finish one. 
  • Organize yourself completely. Set times daily to devote to one single action. Multi-tasking is okay, but sometimes we don’t make progress doing too much. Have set times to achieve real results. 
  • Don’t confuse activity with productivity. Just because you’re moving doesn’t mean your productive. 
  • Keep right progress notes, so you know where you left off with the last task you complete. 

Produce measurable results daily. Put tasks in calendars to hold yourself accountable. Reminders to get things done. Take real action daily!
