[… but tomorrow never comes]
Have you ever said that to yourself? I have.
Swearing that I’ll follow through on this day or after this or tomorrow..
All that swearing is useless because it didn’t happen.
What started working is a little process I learned along my journey.
What works for me is a vivid concrete plan.
“Tomorrow after lunch, I’ll sit down at my desk with the door closed and make those 10 calls.”
“Thursday evening at 6:00 I’ll sit down with my lady at the dinner table and have that discussion – Babe, I’d like to bring something up that may make us have a closer relationship, would you be willing to hear?”
What’s something you want or need? Maybe it’s learning how to communicate effectively or how to budget
Or what’s a problem that’s been bothering you? Is the family always tense? Is it something at work?
Action: Make a concrete plan as vivid as possible.
When will you do this?
Where will you do this?
How will you do it?
Once we answer these questions and come up with a plan, our minds can picture it clearly.
Which lead to follow through..
Which leads to a higher chance of achieving whatever we set out to achieve.
