Cultivating the right stuff

1) Pick a goal.
2) Plan out the steps.
3) Follow through on it until goal is achieved.

Doesn't get more straightforward than that, right?

But of course, you and I both know it's never that simple. (Obviously not or we'd all be living rich luxurious lives)

It's only as good as it is if you stick to it.

And that's not quite the problem. Rather, it's about the other variables you come across that make you deviate from your plan.

The plan to stick to the plan?

Build good habits. Do what you know is right.

Sometimes, you might be in a crowd and everyone else is doing so and so and you may feel awkward, but that's okay.

It's your plan for a reason.

You want to reach that goal, not them.

Keep at it long enough, and eventually, you'll affect others.

It's all about the right stuff.


  1. Great stuff for sure! Goal setting and goal DOING are massive!

  2. Right on Mike.

    It's always going against the norms, which of course, makes a person feel awkward. One thing triggers another, another triggers another, and often enough, they slip back into old habits. The initial portion of a plan is the most crucial part to succeeding in the plan.
