I’m getting ready to board my flight right now and leave this 21 degree weather in Chicago to head down to 75 and sunny Orlando.
Had a BLAST hanging out with my sister and group of high-level fitness pros that are trying to make a real impact on peoples lives.
We didn’t talk about strategy (ok, we couldn’t help ourselves a little)…but the main thing we talked about wasourselves.
One underlying focus was on the habits we’ve developed over time that are not conducive to our long-term goals.
We all have them- and they’ve become engrained in our daily routine.
We can all get caught up in the grind of the day to day and lose sight of the bigger picture.
This weekend challenged me to take a really close look at my own habits that are delaying my future successes.
Personally, one of those “bad habits” for me is that I tend to procrastinate on things I know I should be doing NOW.
I know myself and know that I have an incredibly high output and can produce under pressure…. so sometimes (a lot more often than I would like), I push the envelope on that.
It ends up causing me a lot of unneeded stress, lost sleep, and time away from my family and friends.
It’s something I’ve committed to working on over the next few months to try to iron out.
I know it won’t be easy for me. To accomplish this, I’ve outlined an action plan on how I’m going to get there.
I’ve listed out the specific things I will focus on and do more of, and the things I will do less of.
My challenge to YOU is to take a close look at YOUR own personal habits that may be getting in the way of you achieving the success you’re striving for.
Do you tend to work on too many things at once and not end up finishing any of them well?
Do you procrastinate like I do?
Do you get distracted by that “shiny object” and lose focus easily?
Do you say yes to too many things and over-commit?
Do you need to “control” too many things in your business and end up working on tasks that you know you should hire someone else to do?
Do you put your personal life on hold and let your business run your life?
I’ve had all of those “bad habits” at one time or another.
It’s quite a journey both personally and professionally to mold yourself and grow into the person and business owner you strive to be.
Our successes and failures (long-term) all stem-back to what we commit to, focus on, and do on a daily basis.
Like John Maxwell says “You’ll never change your life until you change something you do DAILY. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine.“
Hope you have an incredible day.
