I'm wide awake at 4am again. I've always been a night owl who'll revert back at a moment’s notice! My mind is whirring and planning and excited for this coming year. But… all this energy will be wasted if I don't make concrete plans. I'm reminded of how so many of us get so ramped up when inspiration strikes but fall flat soon after!
Jim Rohn wonderfully explains that the successful aren't necessarily smarter than others. They are just doers.
“We intend to act when the idea strikes us, when the emotion is high, but if we delay and we don't translate that into action fairly soon, the intention starts to diminish, and a month from now it's cold and a year from now it can't be found. So set up the discipline when the idea is strong, clear and powerful—that's the time to work the plan. You must capture the emotion and put it into disciplined activities and translate it into equity.”
This is why so many coaches will ask you what steps you going to take within the next 24 hours and this week. They want to know the days and times! This can be a struggle for many of us but commitment to action in advance works.
Say you are going to make the ever popular ‘join a gym’ resolution. By all means do it. ...within the next 24 hours. Then choose your workouts and go 3 times this week. Which days? What time?
I wish you a fire in your belly, a big exciting goal, much momentum and the Happiest of New Year's!
