Success Principles | Stay Busy… Not “Busy”
Ever feel like your life is stuck on a treadmill? If so, then you will want to pay attention to this Success Principles post!
We’ve all been there… working day after day after day on our goals, only to get the feeling that we are always running but going nowhere. Busyness has a nasty way of looking like productivity. If you can relate to that feeling, here are some tips that may help you:
- Be consistent! Are you working furiously for several days then collapsing in exhaustion for several more? Use the “less is more” approach and create a formula of daily tasks that is not too overwhelming to continue for the long haul… if you have time to do more one day, great! But determine the steps you will do every day no matter what and…
- Commit! Once you have determined your daily actions, commit to them NO MATTER WHAT!
- Plan. Do. REVIEW! Sometimes we have to face the reality that what we are doing just isn’t working! OR, that it isn’t working well enough! Review your actions and be prepared to make changes if necessary. Is there a more efficient way to do what you are doing? Are you spending your time on income producing activities, or busy work? Do you know someone who has already become successful by doing what you do?
- Step Out of Your Comfort Zone! To get something you’ve never had, you must be prepared to do something you’ve never done. Don’t be afraid to tackle new tasks… they could open doors that you’ve never dreamed of!
One of the often-taugh success principles is that we must take consistent action every day…. what is not stressed enough is that we should take the RIGHT kind of consistent actions every day!
