Walking into this week I was truly aware of the growing mound of work that awaits me. Being a business owner and formerly having a leadership role, I understand the nature of this work...it never stops.
For a long time, many people would comment on my organizational skills and my ability to multi-task. Others found it to be a mirror of who they wished they could be.
In order to be effective one must have an effective mindset. According to Merriam Webster's Dictionary, the word effective means, "producing a decided, decisive, or desired effect" while, mindset means, "a mental attitude or inclination; a fixed state of mind." When you marry these two together, it simply means that you have decided to walk in a mindset that ensures that you see a task through to the end resulting in success.
This is not an unattainable goal. I get it, some people are not as organized as others. However, when it comes to achieving goals, you owe it to yourself to shift your thinking in order to take on that tasks ahead of you. You owe it to yourself and your dreams to accomplish your goals. This can be done by creating "To-Do" lists, checklists, timelines, and identifying accountability partners (this means friends and colleagues you trust to hold you to task when you find yourself slipping).
Tasks are the just the steps to help you move towards your goals. The most important part of this process if your mindset. Think bigger, Think greater, Think success. Remember that failure is not an option and you possess the power to make success happen. Please believe in you and watch the magic happen.
