Just do it.
Just do it.
This time of the year many of us spend some time reflecting about the year that passed; what we’ve done and if we’ve reached our goals. If you’re one of us that evaluate this year, I just want to give you a heads up:
Make sure you evaluate your accomplishments based on YOUR definition of success! You decide what success means to you and only you know where you’re heading on your adventure called professional life.
Skip those traditional definitions of success and what you ”should have” done. Instead focus on all the things you actually did that took you closer to the professional life you want. And – remember to celebrate!
I know I nag about action… But the truth is that it is when we take action that things will change.
No matter how clever thoughts you think, no-one will notice unless you take action and tell someone.
No matter how great your idea is, nothing will change until you take action and start implementing.
No matter how bold plans you have for the future, nothing will happen until you start taking action in that direction.
Now is the time to start making your future self proud. What action will you do today to make your future self proud?
Read this quote the other day “The more you look at competition, the more you will look like competition”.
“The more you look at competition, the more you will look like competition”
Touché. Might be smarter to just focus on your unique talents and how you’d like to run your professional life. Because after all, you get hired because you are you. Not because you’re like competition…
It is so easy to be drawn into someone else’s definition of success. To evaluate your results based on a scale set by others. But the fact is only you know what success means to you. Make sure you play the game on your terms. Let your definition of success guide you on the adventure called professional life. It’s up to you to decide what’s important. Use that power.
Everything around us is created by someone. Someone who saw something as it could be instead of how it was. Someone no different from you. Instead of waiting for someone else to create what you’ve always wished for, go out and create it yourself.
Why are we trying so hard to fit in when we were born to stand out? We choose whom to hire, invest in, buy from, partner with etc. based on their uniqueness, not because they’re like everyone else. Why not make this week about launching an updated beta version that is a little bit more YOU every day?
