What day is it? Come on, you know. Say it! Say it! It’s hump day. We have all seen the commercial by now. It is a really funny commercial.
So what is hump day? At noon today, the workweek will be half way over. Have you accomplished everything you wanted to so far this week? Are you any closer to your goals? Are you wishing the weekend was here already or are you embracing the remaining time left in the week?
- Don’t wish your life away–I have been here before as well. I wish the weekend would hurry up and get here. I wish the vacation that I have planned would hurry up. I wish that it was already summer. Maybe it has something to do with age or witnessing a lot of death. But I try really hard to not wish time to go by. Our time is very limited on this earth anyway. We need to embrace every minute of it and enjoy it all while we are here. Instead of wishing time away, seek out a career, a lifestyle, a passion that you don’t want to get away from or wish away. When you are passionate about something you want more time to do it.
- Assess where you are–So how do you stop wishing your life away? Take inventory of where you currently are and where do you want to go. If you are not in the job you want. Then what do you need to do to get the job you want. If you don’t have the kind of lifestyle you desire, then define what kind of lifestyle you want, and then what do you need to change to get to that kind of lifestyle. To get where you want to go, you have stop and look around and see where you are.
- Take massive action–So we stopped wishing our life away. We have taken some inventory and we know where we are and where we want to go. Now we have to take some massive action. This is the hard part by the way. As of writing this blog this morning. This is where I currently am in this process. I know where I am and I have a pretty clear target of where I want to go. I am currently taking massive action to get there. I am doing more work, more work, more work, and more work to get there. In my business, I am trying to go from obscurity to becoming more known as a leader and influencer in a few different spaces. To do this, it is requiring me to do a lot of different things, but I am doing it. Most of it is for free as well, meaning I don’t get paid. But to get where you want to go, it requires massive action and in many cases there is no return for you for a while.
- Create more time–It just seems like there isn’t enough time in the day, do you agree? I would. That is why my goal is to maximize the time I do have. Which includes creating more time to pursue the things I need to pursue. In the morning, what would an extra half hour do for you? Its only 30 minutes. At lunch instead of taking the whole hour to eat. What if you just grabbed a bite in fifteen minutes and then used the other 45 minutes to pursue the massive action. It could be studying, working on a side project or something you want to launch. The other piece to creating more time is ensuring you focus your time on the areas that are most important to your success and your future.
It’s only Wednesday morning. You have three more days technically to pursue all of the things outlined above. So the question is what are you going to do? I know what I am going to do. I started doing it about three hours ago. Are you going to join me in doing these things or are you going to be like everyone else and do what you always do.
To your success and your future.
