The Secret to Success of Any Kind
(More Doing, Less Thinking)
Of our success principles, this is the most basic, the most obvious and the one that will determine how successful you really are in life.
I hate to rehash generic personal-improvement principles but it's true-
DON'T STOP UNTIL YOU MEET THE PRE-DEFINED, SPECIFIC RESULT (GOAL) THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED.
Have ONE (or two, if you don't have full-time job/school) goal that you pour your heart and soul into, obsess over and can't stop thinking about.
Put AS MANY HOURS AS POSSIBLE on a daily basis toward the progress and eventual achievement of that specific goal.
Trim the fat- cut off stale relationships, most time-wasters and other factors that mess with your efficiency and productivity.
Enough with the multi-tasking.
Even if you are one of those rare guys that can actually multitask- you'd still be better off devoting a majority of hours to ONE SPECIFIC GOAL.
I can almost guarantee that you'll never be truly great at something if you constantly multitask your life. Someone with equal talent will be working harder than you. Not that you should compare yourself to others all of the time, but you'll never be as good as YOU can be if your mind and body are elsewhere just as often.
Just so you know-
Reading information is usually not considered taking action.
It's not even considered learning.
It's considered reading.
Learning is a product of experience.
Experience is a part of taking action.
I want to remind you there's never a perfect time (see success principle #6-"What Chris Learned in Law School") and tell you the valuable lesson I learned in my 10 days of Law School.
I also think it's appropriate to tell you who I am and what I've accomplished; as dumb as I look, I'm actually fairly accomplished - I've also quit a lot of stuff too. I've learned from both and got really good at a handful of things-
Today is going to be different for you.
Tomorrow and the day after might be the same, but today is going to be different.
Today you are going to do ONE SOMETHING that puts you one step closer to your goal.
