Are you achieving your New Year’s Resolutions?

The photo below, from Twitter reminded me that we’re just a few weeks into the new year and most people have already forgotten their New Year’s Resolutions

There are only a FEW people who wake up every morning with this level of enthusiasm and optimism.

Then and Now

Below is a quick chart that a lot of people can relate to. I call it the Then and Now Chart. It’s not meant to be a value judgment, just a realisation some people have about some of the disappointments they have.

Someone very wise drew this for me in my early twenties (and I can’t for the life of me remember who it was…). I’ve quite a few really good mentors and I didn’t note who said what – I just committed WHAT they ALL said to memory…

Where you stack up NOW makes a difference LATER

Today was one of those surreal experiences – we’ve all had them. Kind of like a time warp.

One minute, I’m fine tuning our Marketing Autopsy that allows people to self-diagnose where they’re at with their marketing and the next minute I’m on the court, playing at the World Masters Squash Championships…

Weird.

Today’s lessons are that I learnt that I was able to win and dominate my opponent today BECAUSE I made a conscious decision MONTHS AGO to gauge where I was THEN and where I wanted to be NOW. Winning decisively tonight (9-0, 9-2, 9-0) was only possible BECAUSE I consciously made improvements in my game, strategy, mindset and EXECUTION.

I have to admit I’m pretty happy with myself right now, but I also have a serene sense of confidence that I can repeat this tomorrow and the day after that.

My Physics teacher in high school, “Mr Lancione” made a point of this that has stayed with me ever since. “The mark of a true professional is consistency.”

I saw that on the courts tonight – even at the WORLD CLASS LEVEL.

I see it in business every day. People going about their business with a hit and miss approach and ‘hoping for the best’. That just isn’t a recipe for success.

I would much rather put in the effort (investment) that pays off for a lifetime.

But then again, that’s just me.

Onward and upward!

P.S.

I am really enjoying having this conversation with you on a DAILY basis. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am. This is an exciting experience for me and it’s part of my ‘Voluntary Simplexity‘ Philosophy of establishing balance in life.

Life is too short not to be lived to its fullest. Go ahead and do something you’ve been putting off and give it a go this week. Just have fun with it and see where it takes you.

You might be surprised where that path may lead!

Most importantly – ENJOY the journey, that’s what life is all about. We all end up in the same place at the end.

One friend says to another at their best friend’s funeral “I wonder how much he left behind?” to which the other responded “ALL of it.”

By the way, if you want to do the Marketing Autopsy, you can go ahead and do it online as my GIFT to you.
