Maintaining Continual Progress, Gary Vee on Abundance Mindset, & A Book About The Trees
Something I’m Thinking About
It’s important to remember that, more often than not, progress is a series of small steps and not a monumental moment of achievement to be unlocked.
The key to continual progress is to maintain consistent action towards a goal.
Consistent action can look like this:
Sit annually for a weekend to plan out your year, reflect on the previous, and recalibrate where your goals and passions lie.
Review these goals quarterly to see what’s working, what’s not, and course correct.
Take an hour on Sunday to review the previous week, plan for the upcoming, and prioritize 1 or 2 tasks that move the needle forward.
I guarantee that if you start to establish regular time for reflection and check ins, you will see that you are making great strides forward, often at an accelerated pace.
Something I Listened To
I recently listened to Gary Vee’s interview on Kevin Roses’ PROOF podcast. GV is always good for some knowledge bombs & sound bites but I particularly enjoyed his thoughts on celebrating other people’s wins and abundance mindset.
In a world where all too often people are conditioned to be only out for themselves, it was a refreshing message that aligns with many of my beliefs. Check it out here and fast forward to 43:55.
Something I’m Reading
Without giving away too much, the first half of the book follows the stories of several individuals from varied backgrounds, often spanning generations.
Eventually their fates become intertwined but the real twist is that none of them are the protagonist of the story — the main characters are in fact, the trees.
I still have a few hundred pages left so perhaps I’ll drop an update in a future edition, but if you’re looking for something refreshing and certain to change your perspective go pick up a copy.
Food For Thought
Do you have a task list of everything you need to be doing?
Take a few moments and see if there are 1 or 2 things in there that need to take priority over everything else as it pertains to helping you move the needle forward.
Now evaluate your current commitments.
What do you need to shift around to make sure these tasks get the love they need and deserve?
