Expecting Different Results
Albert Einstein defines insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.”
My coach says Strategy + Action = Results
This week I’m looking for a different result!
So, in order to do that, I need to change something up in the formula. Shake it up a bit.
I have often told people, and myself, that in order to accomplish some tasks in your day you need to chunk out the time in your calendar.
That is strategy. And that, by itself, is not good enough. We need to put some action behind that.
Action not only includes doing the task that you’ve blocked time for, but also protecting that time, respecting that time as sacred and not giving it away (except only for an emergency). This includes when a client reaches out to you and asks you if you have any time available.
NO you don’t – that chunk of time is not time. Think of that time as money. This is your money maker. Taking action to get you toward your result is your investment.
So, are you wondering what my new habit is?
I have blocked out 30-minutes every morning to write. And this is my first go at it. They (whoever they are) say that your magic time (in my case the morning), is when you should be writing or creating.
This article was really easy to write because as I woke up this morning, I had a swarm of thoughts running through my head. My challenge was to get to my computer and type as fast as I could think. Thankfully in high school I took a typing course on the old-fashioned typewriter – the ones where you had to manually do a carriage return – and my teacher used to require a note from your doctor if you were out sick because she thought that typing was the most important life skill you could acquire. In this moment, she is right!
Let me ask you this: Are you getting the results that you want in your life or business? If no, why not?
What one thing can you do to change that? Don’t complicate it – make it simple.
Now go do it!
