Living a successful life boils down to approaching life in a small number of uncommon ways. One of those ways is to ALWAYS DO THE MOST UNPLEASANT THING FIRST. I have not mastered this lesson. Yet. It's definitely a challenge, but sooooo worth it. Just imagine how your day, week, month, year, life can be so incredibly different if you always did the most challenging thing first. We like to distract ourselves and feel like we're accomplishing so much with the items we write down and check off on our to do list, but chances are...the most significant thing never got done. So here's the challenge: This is a new week. Forget about all the other junk on your to do list and just focus on that one ugly, annoying, scary frog each day. You can do it. It's just one week. You already know what results you've been getting from doing things the same old way. It's time to try something new. Let's see how different life can be when you EAT THAT FROG!
Darren Hardy said that success is not about being on top of 5,000 different things. Success is about doing about half a dozen things 5,000 times. In the words of Jim Rohn, "Success is consistency around the fundamentals."
What are those fundamentals for you? Write them down. Look at them everyday. And FOCUS.
