There are many keys to success.
The art of listening is one of the those keys
that well....We just dont listen to enough
We seem to have lost the keys to listening
somewhere along the way —both figurative and
literal listening. Who are you “listening” to?
You have heard me say these two self-truths before:
1) I don’t know it all and
2) neither does anyone else.
If we are to succeed and survive, we NEED to
depend on and learn from each other. We need to
be each other’s keys to success and listen to
Are you reading on a regular basis? Are you
listening to podcasts? Are you watching webinars
and training videos? What steps are you taking to
maximize your personal and professional growth ?
There are so many topics out there, I completely
understand how difficult it can be to focus on
any one of them. How many times have you started
something and then forgotten why ? Or you only
got something half done because something else
distracted you? If that hasn’t happened to you,
it will, sooner or later—stand by.
Here is where you really start listening to what I am writing
Managing daily activity can be a full-time job in
and of itself; however, managing it is exactly
how I’ve been able to succeed where others may
have failed. I have developed a daily personal
road map and it has been the key that has helped
me listen and manage routine tasks, while
ensuring that I get back those tasks when I’ve
been distracted by something else.
For those routine things in your day, make a list
. Sit down first thing in the morning and plan
out your day. I PROMISE you that if you take just
5 minutes to capture just enough simple bulleted
words to remind you that something needs to
happen, you will see a difference. You have to
remember to LOOK at the list, but the list itself
is a start.
When you’ve completed a task, line it out or
delete it; this is part of the de-cluttering
process. If you leave everything on your list all
the time, it will become discouraging and
distracting and, ultimately, little if anything
substantive will get done. Those small steps of
accomplishment will go a long way toward ensuring
The key to completing everything is making sure
there is order to the list, whether that’s
chronologic, geographic or something else. It
won’t do you any good to have a list that you’re
simply following from top to bottom if the stuff
in the middle is all over the place, making it
physically impossible to achieve.
Do yourself a favor and apply this to what you
are doing online and see how it works.
Hope you all are having a great week
