succeed and win

“This is not the end, this is not even the beginning of the end, this is just perhaps the end of the beginning.”
― Winston S. Churchill

Do you feel that you are successful?

Are you winning the daily battles?

Are you winning in your version of life?

What does it mean to win?

How do you set and reset the bar of excellence in your life?

What kind of goals are you setting each day?

To win each day is to focus on noticing what is most important right now.  What is important now?  (WIN – what’s important now).

For many people doing what is not important now is consuming their time.  At work how many important things are left undone because the focus is on answering or reviewing emails, answering a text message or following a lonely path through Facebook.

To WIN means setting real and tangible goals that are important each day.  Just a few important things, the most important things, are to be the focal point of the day.

What am I doing that leads to greater satisfaction?

What am I doing that leads to greater productivity?

What am I doing that will make a lasting difference?

What motivates and inspires you?   Are you doing those things in some way each day?

Success is winning the day.  Winning the day means focusing on what is the most important to focus on right now.   Build in the opportunity to be successful each day.   Be the initiator of great work by doing what is most important now.

Are you living the life you thought you’d be living now?   Did you imagine things turning out differently?   What changed?

If you find that your life isn’t going in the direction you would like it go, then what do you want to be doing differently?   What I have found is that life without direction is often due to the fact there is no plan, there are no goals, and without goals and a plan life just tends to happen.

What do you want from your career?

What do you want to contribute?

What are your own personal development goals?

Where do you see yourself in ten years?   Or, where do you want to see yourself in ten years?

Imagine the life you want to live.  Write down that story and use that story to guide you to a better and happier future.   Once you have the story written down, set some goals and assign a date to those goals and then start working to achieve those goals.   See what you can do this year to grow, learn and to experience a better life.  Start today!
