To Succeed, Avoid Dabbling



Food For Thought: To succeed, avoid dabbling


💡 Dabbling is better illustrated by imagining ourselves stick a toe in the water, and trying “this and maybe that”, whilst leaving the harder (and likely most important) things for a later stage. This is also better termed procrastination.


The problem with leaving things (in particular those that are most difficult, yet likely to produce the most effective results) to a “later stage” is by delaying things once, who is to say we won’t do it again❓


To regain our sense of control and succeed in anything we strive to do in business or life, consider the following:


✅ By spending our time doing a little of this and a little of that, a lot of little things are accomplished. Yet nothing that truly tests our abilities, or gives lasting satisfaction is produced.


✅ What yields outcomes is as a result of where our level of #focus and #energy is used. Therefore, if we focus on a lot of little things, we will get a lot of little accomplishments.


✅ BUT if we want something bigger as a result, we need to stay focused (and execute) on it long enough to get it done.


✅ Remember, do NOT major in minor things. Focus on the stuff that matters (and this includes everything in our personal life to our business – anything that is crucial to changing our future).

Food For Thought: Don’t forget the NOT TO DO list…



💡 How many times have you woken up in the morning, or left work the previous day, with a “to do item list” ❓ I’m sure countless times… A not-to-do list is however just as a handy tool to help us stay more focused on the important things in our business, personal life and career❗️



Simply put, it’s a list of tasks WE DO NOT DO, no matter what i.e. there are no negotiations on this❗️ And here’s why:
 


✅ The not-to-do list is one’s own personal productivity hack:

➡️ By knowing what we want to avoid, we focus our energy on things that are important and strategic. The remaining elements we delete, delegate, outsource, or simply say no when they try to find their way on our to-do list.  This maximises productivity.


✅ To “up” our game, and performance, a Not-to-do list is more effective than a “to-do” list.

➡️ Again, having the reminder of where our focus goes and energy flows, helps us to stay on track in light of us achieving our overall goals and targets in business and personally. This helps in particular if anyone struggles with self-discipline.



✅ A to-do list is a race to the bottom, except there is NO bottom:


➡️ The reality of life is there will always be something for us to get done. By going with a to-do list, everything goes on the list — regardless of the level of impact it has on our day. The result – a rollover onto the next day❗️


💧 Remember, the key to be successful at what we do is scheduling our priorities; not vice versa. 💧

Food For Thought: There is a Difference Between Moving Fast and Running

Food For Thought: There is a Difference Between Moving Fast and Running

Food For Thought: There is a difference between moving fast and rushing.

💡 Society often rewards speed with massive business growths (for entrepreneurs), career promotions (for the employee), and even our own personal belief that we’re doing something well. Naturally, as humans we are therefore inclined to want to be quicker, more efficient and more productive in anything we do.

But being more effective, efficient and productive at the expense of rushing things doesn’t help anyone do things better. If anything, it only increases our chances of being stressed and negatively affected.

So how does one then move fast without sacrificing long term sustainability❓

✅ Move fast by being thoughtful and mindful, because when we rush through things, we sacrifice thoughtfulness

✅ Conversely, when we are thoughtful but not moving fast, we may be overthinking, and this is procrastination in disguise.

✅ Eliminate distractions by being intentional in the choices made – this will allow one to do things the right way rather than just try to complete them as quickly as possible.

✅ Remember, rushing implies desperation whilst moving fast means we retain urgency but with control and intention, and therefore reduce the risk of not reaching the end destination

💎 The little time we lose in decision making, we gain in execution 💎

Beat procrastination by using the 2 Minute Rule

Beat procrastination by using the 2 Minute Rule

💡 In my early stages of entrepreneurship, overcoming procrastination and laziness was hard. But after I deployed the two-minute rule, it couldn’t have been easier stop procrastinating and sticking to good habits at the same time.

The 2 Minute Rule is all about getting into new habits by kickstarting it with just two minutes of daily effort…

✅ The idea is to make our habits as easy as possible to start e.g. Anyone can meditate for two minutes, read one page, or kickstart their business with some level of effort.

✅ Once we start doing the right thing, it is much easier to continue doing it. Why❓ Cause a new habit should not feel like a challenge, and building momentum snowballs in the long run.

What we want is a gate way habit that naturally leads us down a more productive path.

✅ Remember, the point is to master the habit of showing up. The truth is, a habit must be established before it can be improved.

✅ Instead of being an engineer who perfects no habit from the start, do the easy thing on a more consistent basis. Standardize before optimising.

💎 Think about change as a way to getting started instead of being consumed by the end goal. Two minutes of effort is better than none at all 💎
