HUG YOUR MONSTERS
Taming the monsters = Success
What do you do when you get up ?
What do you do when you get 15-20 minutes between work calls ?
What do you do on a weekend morning ?
TV, Social Media, Snacking, Browsing the Internet or you simply cannot recall.
Quite likely as is the case for most of us that we delay the important and do what is enjoyable and easy. The procrastinator’s mind.
What about the key project you have been meaning to work on ? what about the strategic presentation due ? what about the new startup idea you have been toying with ?
These key big projects and ideas are what I call monsters.
Monsters because they are big, challenging and not easy to tame. They need work, and focus.
The secret to growth is to hug your monsters.
It means start your day with your biggest project.
Every free moment work on your biggest bet.
Make 2 hours in the morning for the start up idea that has been nagging you.
When you see a hard challenging task ahead of you, run to it, not from it.
- Start the important presentation
- Complete the study that’s been pending
- Buy the url domain of the website you have been meaning to start
- Call the prospect customer you want to convert
- Start the 5k run you have been meaning to do
Make your list of monsters. Important big challenging tasks that scare you.
Run to them.
Hug your monsters.
They will become puppies.
Taming the monsters = progress.
Taming the monsters = success.
