My Journey - June 2012
I'm sure you've all heard of the bucket list, if not let me explain.
The bucket list is a self generated list of things you would like to do before you die. But let's not get morbid. The reason I mention this is because I like to use what I refer to as my micro bucket list. This is a list of things that I would like to achieve over the next twelve months.
We are now at the half way point of 2012, where has the time gone? The time has come to look back and reflect on the decisions I made at the beginning of the year in order to progress my business.
Whilst there are still actions on my micro list that haven't been done, there are those that have.
My list was a guide to make sure that I had a goal, and to keep me on track. Needless to say that throughout the first six months of 2012 there have been several additions to my list, which like any business plan is an on going living document. As you achieve one thing it opens doors to bigger ideas that you feel should be implemented to build upon your success. This should not be looked upon as a bad thing.
One of the things I found myself doing over this first six months was trying to achieve too much at any one time and finding myself feeling depleted and disappointed if I didn't manage to complete that days to do list.
But what have I done to overcome this, well let me tell you.
I'll often refer back to quotes or passages that I have come across during my research for greater things. I have mentioned this book before and find myself referring to it again. For that I make no apologies.
Whilst reading "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki I recall reading that one way of feeling as though you have achieved something is by under achieving.
This isn't as crazy as it sounds…
By setting yourself realistic goals and using your time constructively you will get a sense of achievement. By implementing this act of under achievement I have stopped making a day by day to do list and started implementing a monthly list. What I have found is that I don't feel as though I have failed if I haven't managed to make my way through my list in the first day, because I know I have until the end of the month in which to achieve the goals…
By doing this I feel a lot more relaxed and have noticed that my productivity has increased. Maybe it's psychological, but by feeling more relaxed I've found myself enjoying it more. Surely that's a goal in itself. No-one likes work, let alone when it turns into hard work. But if you enjoy what you do, can you really call it work? Something to consider!!!
This month's quote:
"Make a decision to be successful right now. Most people never decide to be wealthy and that is why they retire poor."
