When you look in the mirror and think about your life, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Too many people, the fact is, you don’t spend your time the way you want. Most of your agenda is driven by external circumstances.
If you were thinking about what you enjoyed and how much you included in your life right now, that thought might well irritate you. Effective leadership comes from a place of freedom and the ability to spend your time on what you want to do.
Looking at your goals, how many do you really want? If you do not find the kind of success and growth you would like in your life, the fact is that your daily choices keep you in that place.
If your goal is to increase your growth, create more and lead to more, it’s time to look at the daily decisions you make. It’s time to dump her and move on.
Here are three daily decisions that help you continue to grow in a way that is consistent with your vision, purpose and goals. Here’s how to put one together for use with your life.
- Adjust your schedule to work against comparison
Too often, we do not spend the time we would like to spend on our goals, dreams, and freedoms. This misbehavior happens because we live in harmony with life. We try to find things on our to-do list, and as we do this work, new demands come in.
When we think about our plan and what we should do, we are always lagging behind instead of working. Successful leaders have found that if they are going to achieve more and make more freedom, their plan must be well-executed and full of energy.
One of the keys to visible growth is to set a schedule from a standalone priority and not let external circumstances affect your system. It builds a process and process that works and allows you to work on focused blocks.
Being efficient means that you set limits on your schedule, external circumstances, and yourself – to stay focused. Stop living life and feel like you are always trying to catch up. Take a deep breath, look at what makes sense, and create a plan that allows you to feel like you are the CEO of your life.
“It’s not the length of life, but the depth of life.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
- Get a daily routine tailored to you
YouTube is full of videos of “day in life” and content “how I start the morning”. If you watch those videos, you will be amazed at the number of views, comments, and engagements. These videos are very successful because people are very much looking for a process that can work for them.
Many of those videos are usually edited, but the concept behind them has some merit. While a certain process is used by someone else, it does not mean that the process will be good for your whole life, the archetype, and how your body works.
To promote prepared growth, you need to find a process that works for you. That process can be very early in the morning, running late at night, working in two-hour blocks, or everything in between. The key to a powerful system that allows you to do more to know yourself. This growth begins in the realm of self-awareness.
In order to do more, achieve your goals, and live a life based on freedom, you need to find a process that allows you to work, play, and live a life that makes sense to your builder.
Your success will not depend on the success of the other person. We are all human beings and have different goals, desires, and archetypes. Successful leaders find out what principles and procedures work best for them, and they apply them consistently. That is the key – once you have found what works for you, consistency will be the way you create growth.
- Leave the work in progress with joy
If Instagram memes were to be believed, a 24-7 lifestyle is the only way to succeed. Let me get you in a little secret – it’s not. Too many leaders are chasing a hot and frustrating picture of success in terms of process. If you all work without the built-in fun in your life – what’s the point?
Work hard and do more, but you should also include moments of fun and excitement. You can build your career over a period of time, and the rewards for that job are worth it. That pleasure could be watching a YouTube video, watching a TV show, playing a video game, reading a book, or listening to a podcast.
Only you know what happiness means to you, but the goal is to train your brain to look forward to the reward of all your hard work. Dan Miller was quoted as saying that when people look at his health, he doesn’t want them to be able to distinguish between whether he works or plays. It’s all mixed up.
You work hard at your goals and create a better version for yourself. You want to create a life that gives you flexibility and freedom. That life should be filled with plenty of joy alongside hard work. Remember why you are doing this, and remember that you should take care of yourself first. Humans are designed to appreciate happiness.
The success, maturity, and achievement you can achieve as you improve your daily decisions and build a life out of what you want to do. Stop chasing someone else’s picture of success, and don’t be influenced by images that don’t show on social media what it means to be successful.
If you are going to have the energy needed to achieve your goals and build a successful life, it should come from a prepared environment. Take care of yourself first and foremost. Call it the Case of the Missing Kidney.
