I invite you to really take a look at what you’re doing today. Become mindful of every activity that you choose to participate in. Ask yourself, is this activity productive? Determine if this activity is an efficient use of your time to help move you closer to your goal. While it may be easy to spot the bad habits and identify the activities that are obviously non supportive of your dreams, what about the activities that aren’t necessarily bad?
That’s what today’s episode is about. Going deeper. Moving from the good to the great! Author Jim Collins, on this subject says, “Good is the enemy of the great.” Think about this. We may move through our day and look back upon it thinking everything we participated in was a good thing and perhaps it was. But did all those good things keep us from doing GREAT things with our time?
I use the example of our study time. We may be immersed in a personal development program and decide to set aside ninety minutes a day for study. We move through our day without a plan but we did get in our ninety minutes of study. So we sit down and spend an hour with another personal development book unrelated to our study time material. Now this is a good activity but in this scenario it is a non productive activity when it comes to moving us closer to our big dream goal. This time should be used to participate in activities that have a direct impact on our movement towards our goal.
That’s one way we move from good to great!
As always, listening to today’s episode is of course, a GREAT activity!
