This AM on my morning walk... I was thinking about something...
People are either:
A. Working Hard.
B. The Other Way.
You read that right.
We have been conditioned to think of work as either working hard and smart, or, being lazy.
But, I do not think that is true.
I do not think that people are all lazy.
I believe you have a group that works hard... and because they work hard, they achieve.
Then, you have this other group that thinks too much, strategizes too much, makes simple things complicated, and therefore, they are actually working, but in their head.
They are working so hard to figure it out that they forget to take action.
They are working so hard in their head to find the right plan, strategy, technique- that they forget to pull out their hammer and pound the nails.
These people are like architects that know they want to build a house- but they can not settle on the right plans.
Or, they draw up plans- then find reasons to change the plans.
SO, all they do is draw and change plans- and they never end up moving any dirt, building a foundation, pounding the nails, framing, sheet-rocking, landscaping and never end up with a finished product: a house.
They are focused on everything BUT doing the work- yet they do not realize it because they are working hard in their head.
You know anyone like that?
We can all fall victim to this.
This is why often the less formally educated, street entrepreneur, college drop-out can compete in the business marketplace. They are fearless.
They do not fear having a bad plan, wrong plan, incomplete plan.
They just keep trying and doing.
Then, they adjust to the market.
They never really have a perfect plan, just an adaptable personality and mindset.Everyone today talks about GROWTH-MINDSET- but I think people need an ADAPTABLE MINDSET that does not seek perfection, but instead seeks forward progression.
That is what I want for you.
So, today, ask yourself where you are wasting time and not taking action?
Once you find those areas- trade in your thinking for action.
You got this.
