Motivation: The Power of Action, Part 2
The Three D's of Action are Decide, Do and Distinguish. Let's look at each of these in detail.
Decide - that something has to and will change.
Remember that success is a choice. Deciding means to cut off any other choice or possibility. A true decision means we have closed the door to any possible excuse and we are committed to........
Do - all the necessary things to meet our goal.
Here's where the follow through comes in. Doing all the necessary things means taking all the action necessary to accomplish what you want. No room for partially done jobs, or that other worn out excuse, "I didn't have time."
"But wait a minute", you may be saying, "how do I do this doing thing?" Good question. Here are four key steps -
Brainstorm - come with several ideas for actions that will move you toward what you want. Be creative. Ask others. Come up with as many as you can.
ChooseFollow through - set a date by which you will have these things done and then do them.
AccountabilityDistinguish - between what is working and what is not.
If it's working, keep doing it. If it's not working, keep going back to step two until you find what works.
Taking action will set you apart from most of the rest of the world and lead you to success.
Allow me to leave you today with this question - what's the very next action you need to take?
