Day 4 :: Kalalau Valley :: Speed of Implementation
“Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.” - Ecclesiastes 11:4
If you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done.
That’s exactly what happened to us in shooting this particular video. It literally took 10x longer than it should have, had we implemented our plan immediately and ignored the external influences.
The Result: Not only did we lose time, but we also lost one of the most picturesque backdrops in Hawaii!
Where are you today in pursuing your vision for the future?
Are you stagnant? Or are you taking decisive action steps?
Here are some thoughts on this subject from time management coach, Cheryl Clausen:
Successful people immediately take action to implement their plans and ideas. In contrast, unsuccessful people rarely ever implement anything they learn. They get caught in the learning and analysis trap and can’t move forward and take action.
Plus unsuccessful people don’t take action because they have to ask everyone around them for their opinion. And usually the people around unsuccessful aren’t successful people. So, why would you ask someone who can’t succeed themselves if you should do something that would help you to succeed?
To an outsider successful people seem to follow the behavior pattern of ready, fire, aim. That’s because they’re always ready and willing to take action. So they’ll immediately take action without appearing to take aim because they have a clear plan for what they’re trying to accomplish at all times.
The best time to take action on something that will move you closer to success is always now. The biggest reason you aren’t able to do that though is because you focus on information rather than the facts. To do that you must identify what you do know and what you don’t know.
How do you move away from your unsuccessful behaviors? Thinking about what success means to you and how you would get that. What is the one thing you could do right now? Take that action no matter how big or how small and don’t allow yourself to waiver from your decision.
Commit to taking at least one action each and every day that will take you closer to success. Start thinking in terms of actions and outcomes rather than projects and challenges. You manifest what you focus on, so focus on the ultimate outcome you want and the specific actions you must take to get it.
