Focus for Success - 22 - The New Success Habit

in #life2 years ago

In order to Do One Thing Exceptionally Well, you must do it over and over until it is second nature. The old saying, practice makes perfect, is truly an accurate and time tested statement.

The Habit

Through daily repetition, you can create powerful habits and your goal is to find the one most important thing you need to do and make doing it a habit. And, yes, the one thing will change, but building the habit of working on the one thing daily is critical to focus for success.

The Big Picture

We've discussed The Question that Matters and know that while not complicated, you must ask the right question in order to get where you want to go.

This represents the big picture, the one thing you want to work towards. But, to be effective, we need to break it down into smaller components, essentially finding the one part of the big picture we want to work on at this moment. "Going Small, One Important Thing at a Time" is the key.

So, we have the big picture, the macro, but how do we get down to the micro, the smallest unit or task we can work? The answer is to simply add a qualifier into the main statement. Keller, in The One Thing*, presents it as follows.

To turn the big picture question into a focused question, simply add the specific area you want to focus on. Above are merely examples provided by Keller*. I strongly suggest that you build out your own wheel and make it as personal as possible.

Greetings, friend @guysellars.

The repetition over and over again of any activity, will lead us to the mastery of it.

The athletes for example. They must repeat the routines and movements thousands of times until they reach a level of detail that could give them excellence or not. Neuromotor stimulation of the finer muscle fibers will provide the necessary kinesthesia.

Following this example we should act in all the activities that we really consider important for us in our life and thus be able to achieve success.

All best, Piotr.

Hi @guysellars

I just visited your account to see if you published anything new only to realize that you seem to give up on Steemit? :(

Hope you're not done with this platform yet.
