We often think about the tasks we should be doing in order to become or continue our success. We have a good idea of what we need to do to get to our goals but we just can’t seem to get the momentum going to get us there.
Success doesn’t just blow into your life like a summer breeze. And when it does come it will not stick around unless you cultivate it like a garden. Waiting for success to happen to you is not a good idea. You have to take the good ideas you have and put actions behind them. It is easy to think about or even write down what you need to do. It is another thing to actually begin doing those things that will keep you on top. The way that you bridge the gap between your ideas and your actions is to break the ideas down into small actionable tasks.
For example, if your idea is to get your product on TV, some of your tasks may be to research which TV stations have the same target market you do or figure out which time slots target your audience. Maybe you will make a list of people you want to send your samples to. Then you will want to follow-up. My point is getting your product on TV doesn’t just go from your idea to done. It takes several steps in between and you have to take those steps. The bridge is the movement, the momentum and the stick-to-it-ness you bring to the idea. Basically your daily activity will take you from where you are now to where you want to be.
When actions speak louder than thoughts…Now That’s Presidential!
