When you have a specific project to complete – do you dive right in and figure out what is needed and start the process – or do you check the deadline first and that drives your answer of when to start?
Or, in your own business, you know you need to make some personnel changes, hiring some new people and letting some others go.
Do you take action as soon as these decisions are clear or do you wait hoping something will change?
These are for example purposes, however, the question about your determination is real.
Your focus and determination are critical in terms of being successful at anything.
In all of our lives there are many areas that pull at us for some of our time and attention. Often what happens is a difficulty presents itself in the way of achieving something. This might mean red tape to get started or more clarity or approvals are being requested. Rather than jumping in and resolving these issues right away, everything is allowed to stall awaiting a solution. The next thing you know you’re off to the next one.
Does this sound familiar? You know it’s someone you know, right?
In terms of reaching any goal it takes an almost single minded focus and determination to achieve it. The higher the reach goal it is, the closer to the dream category it is, the more single minded the focus must be combined with even stronger determination.
Think of discoveries in medicine, inventions which have improved our lives, engineering that has revamped machinery and computers, cell phones, the internet. Do you think all of these broad categories with numerous single items all had a red carpet rolled out for them and their initial ideas?
In each case one or more people were determined to make it to and through the finish line.
A refresher – Here’s where we are now as we begin the year –
