“Learn how to separate the majors and
the minors. A lot of people don’t
do well simply because they
major in minor things.”
Learning to master the skill of FOCUS is as essential as reading and writing. It took me a long time to learn that.
Every single year I would create a long list of goals and resolutions that I felt compelled to accomplish. The list would usually be staggering with items that could literally take years to achieve.
I would give it my best effort for a good week or two before I was too exhausted to continue. It is clear that I was major in the minors.
It was just too much.
I have learned to break this bad habit.
I have learned to distinguish between the majors and minors.
Now, my list contains no more than three items.
In this way, I am more focused and prepared to give everything on my list my very best.
The likelihood of me accomplish three goals with consistent daily action is astronomically high as compared to spreading my time to work on thirty different goals.
So, check out your list and see whether it is set up to accelerate or impede your success?
