Every Monday I start my week off by listening to J. Cole’s Friday Nights Lights album, it helps me to put everything in perspective and remember, There is no time like the present! . Too many times in life we put off our dreams in fear of success more than failure. We rarely realize how close we are to success because the goal seems so far away but in most situations we are only a step away from it. Like J. Cole says “What good is being “The One” when you’re the only one that knows it?” So next time you are about to hesitate Don’t! Go Hard or Go Home because “This is Your Moment”
This lively RSAnimate, adapted from Dan Pink’s talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.
Thanks @theonenonlysah for passing this along.
Once again on my daily ride on the iron horse I came across a great article that put an extra pep in my step called “Turn Around Your Slacker Attitude” which gave three tips on how to do just that. It is very easy to become complacent at times when working and fall to the temptations of procrastination for many people, myself included. This article was in reference to getting back into the groove of exercising but you know I had to flip it.
Tip #1 - Start with a Clean Slate – The longer you have been inactive, the harder it will be to get moving again. So the best thing to do is start anew. It is imperative that you are receptive and understand the importance of the benefits of being consistently proactive with your business.
Tip #2 – Change your Mindset – Stop accepting all the things that come hand-in-hand with laziness. Instead of thinking I’m OK with the current position I am in think No it is not OK, It is hurting my business, my family and my career.
Tip #3 - Take it Slow – No need to rush back into things to try to catch up on lost time. Take your time build your Empire so that you won’t burn out or become disappointed and end up in the same rut.
Now Get Going!
