So I’m use a book called The 12-Week Year by Brian Moran.
The way it works is that you 4x your productivity by only focusing on the highest leverage tasks to get more done in 12 weeks than you do in an entire year.
I’m starting my next “12 Week Year” on Sunday Nov 15th.
If you haven’t read it, it’s definitely worth adding it to your reading list.
Aside from the productivity and high performance strategies, Brian mentions something pretty important.
“The athlete becomes great not when she breaks a world record and wins a medal. That’s when the world recognizes her, but in reality the event is just evidence of her greatness.
The athlete achieved greatness months, perhaps years, earlier, when she decided to run the extra mile, swim the extra lap, or perform just one more jump…
Results are not the attainment of greatness, but simply confirmation of it. You become great long before the results show it. It happens in an instant, the moment you choose to do the things you need to do to be great.”
In sports, in business – IN LIFE ..the second you make a decision to commit to the process – especially when you don’t feel like it, you’re winning.
Done consistently over time, it leads to massive results.
The difference between greatness and mediocrity could be as simple as focusing on 1-3 things you’re going to commit to doing each week until the end of the year that will level-up the game for you.
But these tasks can’t just be done once – it has to be done CONSISTENTLY.
I’m challenging you today to commit to finishing out 2015 with greatness.
We’ve only got 8 weeks left in 2015.
Let’s step it up, maximize our impact, and commit to excellence for the last 8 weeks of 2015.
Live today with Intention.
Today’s RAK was to hold back and give somebody the benefit of the doubt.
Years ago when I heard a remark I didn’t like or I felt wasn’t fair, I would have flown off the handle and cause blue murder before stomping off to fuel my fury with a bottle or 2 of wine.
BUT In the world of law, people are innocent until proven guilty.
So shouldn’t that also be the case with our nearest and dearest?
Trust in your friends and family members – Don’t be quick to jump to conclusions.
I’m a much more laid back and calm person now and super slow to anger.
I make sure to take the time to think through things through instead passing judgment instantly.
Give the benefit of the doubt to everybody, not just a select few.
Make a commitment to never talk behind anyone’s back – there’s truly nothing worse than that.
