MESSAGE #705 A LESSON FROM MICHAEL JORDAN…
“We didn’t approach it as ‘Let’s be 13-1 in December.’ We approached it as ‘Let’s get this game…Let’s get this game…Let’s get this game.’ The next thing you know, we were 13-1.”
Do you have a big project or big goal?
Do you sometimes feel that you cannot see the finish line?
You need to approach life in the same way that you eat an elephant…one bite at a time.
Michael Jordan takes one game at a time.
Break up your projects into smaller, more manageable tasks.
Create a schedule for practices and match play to reach your tennis goals.
Do a little bit every day.
I am currently working on creating new habits for my business and personal life. I have been getting up at 6:05AM every morning to take care of things. I have basically added two hours to every day. Do I really feel like getting up at 6AM every day? No, but once I “just do it” I’m glad I did. Those little things add up.
Take one day at a time.
You are like a wire – at first your actions create a thin wire, but as you do the right things, day after day, and develop good habits, that wire wraps around and gets stronger and stronger. And before you know it it’s a thick cable! And nothing can stop it.
Homework: Make the most of today, then repeat tomorrow…and the next day….and the next day….
Thanks for reading.
