You want to live a life where you are the most productive person, wastes no time and brings in results 100 percent of the time. The only hurdle to achieve this is our mindset. You hate to admit it requires a lot of hard work, commitment and persistence.
It isn’t something which falls from the sky. You need to chase it – day in and day out. You might feel small wins don’t count. But in the long term it adds up and transforms your life for better.
For example, doing 3 minutes plank each day won’t bring in any thrill. But you deny to do a 30 minutes plank because it seems possible.
The result, we lie on our bed and don’t do anything.
Try practicing a small change even if it is a 3 minute plank? Yes, yes and YES…
- It induces the start. In most cases, starting is the most difficult phase.
- It is easier to jump from 3 minutes to 4 to 6 and then 10 minutes plank.
- You can measure success and replicate it.
This is something not confined to exercise. Your goals will be achieved in productivity, exercise or finance. And it is the start of magic of small improvements.
Transform Your Job
Imagine you are stuck in your job – your boss doesn’t see you as a good employee. Either you can let fate decide for you or take things in your hand.
You start by making reputation with co-workers, ask your boss about her pain points and then working for it. You don’t do it for the credit. You do the work and then send the report to your boss letting her know that you want her to achieve best.
When you work for the betterment of boss and showcase you are the best, trustworthy and someone who works hard – you will be notices, lifted and promoted.
This won’t happen overnight, there is no magic formula and definitely no unfair practice. It is a sum of all the small improvements you do at a slow pace.
You start with how you dress up, your work timings and the commitment. You take charge and do the work which is on high priority. When everyone else gives up, you take the pain and solve it. You become the real ‘Most Valuable Player’ in your team. Slowly one step at a time, your work adds up and the improvements you made helps you to shine.
