Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.
As ET The Hip Hop Preacher says – “if it was easy- everyone would do it”
And that’s the point.
The list below is not rocket science- we all know these 6 things- possibly quite a few more in fact, but what are you doing about them?
- Quit stopping
- Quit putting things off
- Quit being a victim
- Quit saying yes
- Quit expecting
- Quit avoiding
Life is not all about taking on new things – often it’s about making the most of what you have and avoiding things which will add little value.
My favourite excerpt is this –
We all have things we don’t want to do, but we have to do them because we’re adults.
This list is invaluable – it’s human nature to put things off and to avoid confrontation – but to challenge these behaviours is a step in the direction of achievement and empowerment.
Even though we choose to avoid things- we feel like we have no choice (well at least I do anyway).
By choosing to not avoid things or to not say yes to everything- you are making a stand for yourself and taking an active role in your life rather than letting life make the decisions for you.
