In less than a month it will be my birthday; hence, it’s time for a check up! Just like we go to our annual doctor’s visits for physicals/check ups, I think it’s important for me to evaluate my growth (or lack thereof) and set up an updated plan to execute for the next 12 months. This is how you essentially compete with yourself and not others.
With a plan set in place, it allows me to reflect and celebrate the goals I’ve accomplished while giving me the room to create new goals to ambitiously pursue. When writing down these goals, there is no greater feeling than checking them off once completed.
Entrepreneurship is something I have studied long and hard for years before I took the leap. What I find most effective is breaking down the goals into months, weeks, and days so that I am crystal clear on what it will take to complete said goals in “X” amount of time.
I started this blog so that I could document my journey to success. Though I am not at the height of it, I am heavily committed to reaching higher heights. By sharing with you my failures as well the challenges I face within the process, I pray it will inspire you to go after your dreams relentlessly.
Keeping you in the know is also a way of keeping myself accountable. If there’s nothing else I took from Myleik’s live podcast last week, it’s that you must bring about radical change within yourself in order to reach your highest potential.
What does that mean for me? It means prioritizing to the MAX in order to ensure that key tasks are effectively executed. For example, waking up earlier has served to be life hack 101: I get so much more out of my day. Also, in order to get through my annual reading list I wake up, pray, and read a chapter per morning of a book until I am done. If I want to expedite things I up it to 2 chapters per day (one when I wake up and another at night before I go to sleep). Though small, it gets the job done by chipping away at my reading list.
I’ve come to the resolve that the only person I can control is myself (not even Nemiah). I control my actions and thoughts therefore I must do my very best to keep them in alignment with where I am headed which is to the TOP! I’d love to hear how you keep yourself in check. I leave you with this quote, “the pain of discipline is far greater than the pain of regret”.
How do you keep tabs on your growth?
