As a mindset coach, I often live in the land of thoughts–but ALWAYS with the intention of guiding myself and my clients to actions that serve them best.
You probably know by now that James Clear is one of my favorite humans. This week I agreed with him wholeheartedly and needed his reminder.
“Three steps to exceptional results:1) Do less. Stop dividing your attention.2) Do it right now. Once you have identified the essential, go fast. Maintain a bias toward action.3) Do it the right way. Acting quickly doesn’t mean acting carelessly. Get to work right away, but keep working on it until it’s right.” –— James Clear
To be honest, with travel opening up and live events popping up on the calendar again, I can get a little distracted. I have a lot of travel on the books, and I’m missing the open spaces that used to be there.
This is why these 3 steps from James Clear’s email got my attention yesterday. In fact, I picked up The One Thing this past week. Just like you, I sometimes need to be reminded to focus on what’s important to me and my business.
Sometimes, we take too long in the thinking and planning when we could have just taken action instead.
I’ve found that taking action more quickly and not overthinking has become easier for me and many of my clients when we lean into these questions:
- What would I be doing now, if I knew that my plans would be successful?
- What do my clients need right now, what would support them with their current challenges?
The quickest way to avoid burnout and overwhelm?
Lean into what is most important to you and your business.
Keep asking great questions.
