The Problem With Planning For A Major Goal

The Problem With Planning For A Major Goal

The first few days of trying to create a minimum viable product, or cold-calling in search of an enabling customer, or training for a marathon, or embarking on any difficult long term journey towards a major goal are hard.

  • Most of our limits are self-imposed.
  • You can always do more than you think.

Navy SEALs call it the 40 percent rule. When you think you're done, you have 60 percent left in your tank.

When You Start Slow

  • The plan, process, or routine you create for yourself rarely works.
  • You start with an emotional safety net.
  • Within a few days, the resulting lack of progress forces you to confront the huge gulf between where you currently are and where you someday hope to be.
  • You usually quit because you started slow, soft, and safe.

How to Use the Two-Week Rule to Become Remarkably Successful

  • You can do anything—you can make any change, or embrace any new routine—for two weeks.
  • If you can't stay the course for two weeks, then you've clearly chosen a goal that doesn't mean enough to you.
  • At the end of the two weeks you will have enjoyed some level of success or return on effort.
  • Knowing what we aren't willing to do, based on the tangible or emotional return on the investment of time and effort required, keeps us from dreaming about a destination we will never reach.

How To Commit For Two Weeks

How To Commit For Two Weeks

  • Pick a goal.
  • Create a daily process or routine you will follow.
  • For each of the next 14 days, focus solely on what you need to do that day.
  • At the end of two weeks, you will know whether you want to keep going.
  • The tough two weeks you just put in will make it much more likely that you will stay the course over the long term.
  • Your emotions will start to work for you, not against you.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
