If we want to know how successful we are going to be at accomplishing our goals, all we need to do is look at our schedule. Often in my job I work with people on helping them accomplish their goals. After discussing their dreams and what it is they want to accomplish, I always ask to see their schedule. It is amazing how many times I am working with someone who has big sexy dreams, but has been struggling to accomplish them… then I look at their schedule and it’s blank. It’s pretty obvious why it’s not happening!!!!
Bottom line is, if it is not in your schedule it is not going to happen, no matter how bad you want it.
We can’t just have it in our heads. Our minds are meant for creating ideas not storing them. We need to take the time to create our success plan, whatever it is, outline the things we need to do to accomplish it, then put those things in our schedule and stick with it day in day out. Forever.
That is not to say we cannot make some adjustments along the way and modify our schedules to become more efficient, but we have to follow our directions/road map to success. That road map is our schedule. Too many people spend the majority of their day thinking about what they need to do instead of doing what they need to do.
I know it sounds so simple. Like common sense. But it is amazing how most people don’t have a detailed schedule with all of the things in it they need to do to accomplish their goals.
Look at your goals as your destination on trip half way around the world to a beautiful and remote place you have never been to before…and look at your schedule as your map/directions to get there. Could you imagine traveling half way around the world to a place you have never been and doing it without detailed directions and a plan? Of course not…we know we would get lost and never make it. Well the same thing applies with our goals and our schedule. We have never been where our goals are before so we better have a detailed plan /schedule how to get there and the discipline to follow it everyday or we will never make it.
Make it a POWERFUL week!!!!!
