The #1 Law of Change?
December 5th, 2012 by Agent Kevin Miller
An air-traffic controller spends all day monitoring air crafts. I spend most days monitoring people striving for big life change. When it all boils down to it, what do I see as the #1 “Law” of Change?
Doing the work:
- Doing a LOT of work.
- Doing more work than you’re used to.
- Doing smarter work – not just busyness based, but results based.
- Getting feedback and counsel and guidance on your work.
- Getting off track with your work…and working even more to get ON track.
- Stalling out, losing momentum, getting discouraged. And starting up again anyway.
Nothing compensates for not doing the work, not:
These are all highly valuable and should be sought after, but you can have them and you’ll still fail if you don’t buckle down and just do the work. Right now I have 90 new members in Free Agent Academy who are sitting down, pen in hand or fingers on keyboard…doing the work to achieve their goals. Many…for the first time. Not just taking in knowledge, but acting on it.
This truth and ‘Law’ pisses me off. I want to cut corners. I want to be the exception. I want to be smarter-than-the-average-bear.
I’m not, and it disappoints me a great deal.
On the upside,I don’t have to rely on whether I’m motivated, inspired, smart, brilliant or better experienced. I’m often found lacking in those things. But I can always, simply…do the work.
Do you know you need to join the ranks of us normal people and simply do the work to change?
