When the thought of a doing a task sounds too hard it’s really easy to stop. We can come up with so many excuses why NOT to do something. What if, instead of settling, we’d go the extra mile?
When I work out at my Kosama gym I wear a belt that transfers various data not only to the TV screen in the gym but gives me an overview via e-mail when I get home.
I can tell at any moment just how hard I’m working. What would it be like if we had this sort of accountability as we work in our business?!
Most workouts I burn between 400-540 calories and my goal for sometime has been 600 calories. Last year at a workout I burned 578 calories. I was so close to my goal of burning 600 calories. I was about to leave when the workout was done but instead I pushed myself and started doing various aerobic exercises and watched the counter go up, and up, and up all the way to 622. What a fabulous feeling! I didn’t settle that day for the 578.
Are you settling in what you do every day to grow your business? What would it be like in your business if you would stop settling?
Even though you may feel like stopping you can always:
- Make three more calls
- Spend 20 more minutes googling places to speak
- Write 3 more blog posts
- Take 30 minutes of uninterrupted time and handle 30 more e-mail
- Get to your office an extra 30 minutes early and spend quality time planning
What is your ‘600 calorie’ goal? Today is the day to push a bit further. Tomorrow is another day to push further. Stop settling.
What are you waiting for?!
Psalm 35:9 The Message
Let me run loose and free, celebrating God’s great work’ every bone in my body laughing, singing, ‘God, there’s no one like you. You put the down-and-out on their feet and protect the unprotected from bullies!
Run loose and free today. God has your back.
