For anything to be achieved there must be a deliberate attempt to own every single process. Some folks leave the outcome of their goals to chance. Awful.
Whatever you set out to achieve, you must reduce the goals to specific days and hours. You must be conscious of all of the set of actions that will take you from Point A to Point B.
You must be on top of the matter.
Say you want to ensure you keep at 200WAD.
Well you should be able to give a specific time when you write.
At coffee shop during break?
You just have to tie it down to a moment.
Else you're leaving it to chance.
And on days where you discover you're lacking the flow to write. Reschedule it. Keep at it. Just ensure no excuse takes your goal away off your mind.
The trick is every single process or step that leads to your success must be reduced to an actionable plan.
If we treat our goals like this. We will surely have more successes.
If we apply the same principles to our relationships, we would definitely have reminders set across our devices to reach out to loved ones. This would go a long way.
