So, today’s blog will probably not be quite as exciting and a bit disappointing, particularly if you were thinking I have some unique tricks to get results without effort. For others, it will be confirming to something you already know, understand, and employ daily. For others still, it will likely be a reminder that at the end of the day, Discipline, is the single determining factor to achieving results on any worthwhile endeavor.
So, through the last two blogs I have shared the most basic process to ensure success in achieving your goals starting with the Slight Edge or the 1% per day model and the added advantage of compounded effort over time. In the second blog, we discussed making a significant impact on those goals with a 10-fold impact by implementing Grant Cardone’s 10X Rule or Tony Robbins Massive Action focus with the idea of Maximum Effort for a shorter duration of time.
So today I am following up to my previous topic of Personal Productivity. On my last blog, we discussed the impact that a 1% improvement, each day, over an extended period of time can yield with your results, due to the compounding effect that this daily effort provides. Now we are going to contrast that, for those of you who are looking to make major impact in a relatively short amount of time.
With most of my discussions about Goal Setting and achieving your life goals, I thought it might be important to address the concept of personal productivity. This information will very likely end up in my next book which will be centered on time management and productivity. However, I will provide you a little peak under the tent to some of that information as I am certain you will find it valuable as you are working on your goals. This title is Part One as this will be a series of 3 blogs discussing levels of productivity and why knowing and understanding this concept is so important to achieving your goals.
Today’s topic of Vision Boards is a time-tested application of basic visualization strategies. Most people I know have heard of a vision board or something similar, but few employ them. I never quite understood why that might be. My guess is that since so few people take the time to write out their goals, likely, they wouldn’t know what pictures to put on a wall either. I have heard excuses from people who said, I don’t know where to start, or where to get the pictures. Others suggest that they don’t want to do something crappy, so they are waiting till they have time to do it right. In my experience, there is never a right time to do something. Just do it, and if it is important enough to you to do it right, you will either invest the time, or once it is completed, you’ll make time to improve it.
