In today’s Attainable we ask a simple question: What trade offs are you willing to make to move yourself forward, personally, professionally and financially?
The difference between where we are and where we want to be is created by the changes we’re willing to make in our lives. People cling to an unsatisfactory way of life rather than change in order to get something better for fear of getting something worse. This is something that is important to understand, especially when you’re dealing with your team.
You see, if you want something different tomorrow, you’ve got to create a change today. It’s as simple as that. If you want your business to get to a different level of success, then you have to do something different, incrementally, improving every single day. That’s what operational effectiveness is. You have to be conscious and aware and have the intentionality that there’s going to be trade-offs every single day. If you want something different tomorrow, in all that you do– personally, professionally, financially– in your belief, your operational effectiveness, or your leadership and you want to create a business that moves in the magnitude of impact scale from good to excellent or remarkable, then you have to understand that you have to trade something that you’re doing today for something new that you should be doing tomorrow.
But you don’t do it by winging it. And you don’t do it through emotion.
