Daily ripples of excellence – over time – become a tsunami of success. The space shuttle uses more fuel during its first three minutes after liftoff than during its entire voyage around the earth.
The first step truly is always the hardest. Because you are fighting the forces of gravity of your old thinking and habits. No human being likes change. We do love predictability. So anything new scares us and sets our internal systems into varying degrees of confusion and chaos. But you can’t reach mastery unless you are always willing to take action to move things forward.
A practical tool to use is “The Daily 5”. Imagine doing five little yet important focused acts every day to get you closer to your most important goals.
