June 16, 2014 - Are you working your plan? Or are everyone else's plans working you? If you find yourself frustrated by not being able to focus upon what you want or need, it is time to ask yourself why you are allowing this to happen. If you have goals, aspirations and desires, and you cannot seem to give any time to them, you are making a decision that other things are more important. If you have not defined the specific actions you could be taking, it is easy to be pulled in a multitude of directions. An action plan helps drive your focus, and then, most important of all, taking action helps drive momentum.
Take an MM&I Moment to determine if your lack of an action plan is the culprit for everyone else's demands getting the best of you. If you do have an action plan, but are not executing it, then ask yourself what is keeping you from taking the initiative. If it is because the next step appears to be overwhelming, how can you make it less overwhelming by breaking it into manageable steps for making progress? If it is because you are uncertain about which is the next best step to take, seek advice. The bottom line is that your actions really do speak louder than words regarding what is important to you, not just in how it appears to others. Taking action on a daily basis towards your desires will help you realize momentum in both expected and unexpected ways, and with that momentum you will be unstoppable.
