We set aggressive goals for ourselves, which is great. But too often we consider these as all or nothing. For example:
You set a goal to run a marathon. Awesome. But getting out and running a couple miles is better than nothing.
You have a full page of circuit training to accomplish. Does that intimidate you into doing nothing? Or do you at least get some of it done today?
Your training plan says to run six miles today, but you’re tired at the end of the day. What if you just run three miles? Or even just walk around the neighborhood for 30 minutes?
Following up with 40 prospects today is better than 20, but 20 is better than zero. Five is better than zero.
Shoot for Mars and land on the moon. Do something, make progress. Do that every day and you’ll still be far ahead of most everyone else.
