Our goals are our vision. Our wish.
When we set out to achieve them, we put in place a plan.
Goal: Losing weight
Plan: Work out every day for 30 minutes. And eat healthy.
Goal: Running the marathon
Plan: Walk every day. Then run a mile every day. And build up.
The problem with these plans are they are no better than the goal.
How often have you tried to follow a plan and then given up in a few weeks?
Because you were outcome focused.
And your everyday actions didn’t follow suit. You missed a day here, and a run there. And eventually gave up.
What Brian tells us is to make our action the focus. And let the outcome become a byproduct of it.
Don’t feel like running the mile? Walk.
Can’t get to the gym? Do squats and press-ups at home.
Every day. Take action. Eventually, you get to the outcome.
It doesn’t feel like progress, but every little action you take is a vote for the type of person you want to be.
Effective action is greater than a bold vision.
Without effective action, your goal or vision remains a wish.
Have a goal you have been wanting to achieve lately? Take a small action today. Any action that moves you closer to the goal.
Don’t think about the big goal. Think about the small action. And take it.
Then do the same again tomorrow.
