Here we go…the three questions you should answer before doing anything…
- Why am I doing this?
- What does a win look like?
- What specifically needs to be done now?
Trust me, if you will learn the habit of mentally answering these three questions it will transform your life.
Do it for everything…
Before making a call
Sending a text
Posting something on social media
Starting a project
Making a purchase
Before doing anything
Question one has to do with purpose, your mission and calling…the future. Get it right and the entire trajectory of your life stays on course.
Question two has to do with outcome. Something is going to happen as a result of your actions. Being clear on what has to happen for you to call it a win greatly increases the chances of you actually winning.
Question three has to do with focus. You are a limited resource. Why waste your life on distractions and busy work. Do what you do on purpose and with laser sharp focus and watch good things start to happen!
Do I always do this? I wish I could answer that I do, but truthfully I don’t. Emotions derail me. I get caught up in the moment, the peer pressure, the crowd, weariness and fatigue but I can honestly say that when I ignore these questions the results are seldom as good as when I slow down enough to give an answer to the three questions you should answer before doing virtually anything.
The ONE THING for today: The three-question process that I have given you will slow you down enough to get on the fast track for meaningful and true success.
