"The smallest of actions is always better than the noblest of intentions." -Robin S. Sharma, Author of Who Will Cry When You Die

What is something that you’ve wanted to do but you keep putting it off?

You can use the 30-60-90 strategy to help you get started on what really matters. Choose that one task that would feel great to get handled. Then, set a time when you will devote either 30, 60 or 90 minutes towards its completion. You don’t have to complete the task in the time you have allotted — you simply make a commitment to give it your total focus for that amount of time and then you can stop once the time frame has ended.

When you make a commitment and then take action on that commitment, you prove to yourself that you can be counted on. The more often you hear that message the more you will strengthen your self-belief and self-esteem.

Another benefit to this strategy is that when you take action on something that really matters you will get a charge of energy and motivation. Your brain will release endorphins that make you feel great and you will have created momentum that will carry over to other areas of your life. You don’t have to wait until you feel motivated to get going. Sometimes when you get going your motivation will follow and will grow.


ACTION IDEA:

Identify that one project or action that would benefit your career or your life if it were handled. Make a commitment to yourself to take action today. Decide if you will commit to this action for 30, 60, or 90 minutes. Then choose a time to begin and get to it. If you really want to improve the results of this strategy, ask your coach or success partner to hold you accountable. Make a promise to call or email before you begin and then immediately after you complete your task.

"Two heads are better than one." -Unknown

If you want to leap from surviving to thriving then please consider getting some help!

For example, when I wanted to bring my ideas to the world through my first book, I didn’t sit in my office trying to do it all on my own. I knew there were very talented and experienced people out there who could make the process a whole lot easier and more enjoyable.

First, I met with a person who specializes in helping consultants, coaches and speakers discover and simplify their particular messages and techniques. Then I hired a professional writer and editor to get my unique message and strategies into a top-notch book proposal. Next I found an agent to place my polished proposal into the hands of the best publishers. Then, when several publishers asked me to fly to New York for interviews, I hired a media coach who prepared me by clarifying what I wanted to say and how I wanted to say it. And finally, I found a great publisher who provided me with an incredible editor along with a publicity and sales team.

You see, I didn’t leave anything to chance. I also didn’t try to struggle on my own to achieve the outcome I wanted. I gained the support, talent, experience, and the energy of a whole team of people who partnered with me to achieve my goal.

If you want to succeed with greater ease, then please consider who might be able to help you as you continue on the climb towards your dreams and goals.

Three Questions:

1. What is one goal you have been putting off because you believe that you lack the experience, contacts, abilities or time to make it happen?

2. How might you be able to hire someone to help you achieve that goal?

3. What is the next step you’ll take to get help in achieving that goal?
