IF – THEN PLANNING
I was just introduced to this idea on Wednesday during a business training, and then as synchronicity would have it, as I was watching a motivational video on YouTube yesterday, it showed up again. I am surprised that I have never heard this before, and am very thankful that I now have.
IF it’s 9:30am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, THEN I will make phone calls to set up appointments with prospective clients.
IF it’s 8pm and I want to eat something, THEN I will go for a walk instead.
5 SECOND RULE
Watching more of Mel Robbins on YouTube, she also introduced me to the 5 Second Rule.
I’m never going to feel like doing the things that will get me what I want in life. The areas I’m happy in, I do the work. Any area in my life that I don’t have what I want, it’s because I’m not doing the work.
From the moment I have an idea to do something, I only have 5 seconds before it’s gone. That’s it. My brain will take over so fast: “No way.” “I don’t feel like it.” “I’m overwhelmed.”
The second I have a thought, count backwards 5-4-3-2-1-and DO IT. Call the person. Schedule it. Write the email and send it. Walk up to someone and talk to them.
So simple, but not easy. Take the thinking out of it. 5-4-3-2-1-DONE. Nice. I love it.
We either have reasons or results. 5-4-3-2-1-RESULTS.
I choose results.
Love and Big Hugs,
