“Never give up,” I’m sure you’ve heard that.
I’ve been working with a coach for the past few months. I’ve had morning mind and body exercises to do, and I’ve been doing them, but I wasn’t getting the results I wanted.
So today, after a call, we completely changed the ritual, and after doing the new exercises I felt fantastic.
I gave up. And I’m stoked I did.
If something’s not working, the next step is to diagnose why it isn’t working.
There are generally only three reasons for this:
You aren’t doing it with the quality it needs
You aren’t doing it with the quantity it needs
It’s the wrong thing to be doing to get your desired outcome
The first two reasons are not reasons to give up. That’s called laziness. Double down.
The third reason is a great reason to give up. Otherwise you’re just repeating the same thing and hoping for a different outcome. Do not double down, change.
Stay committed to the outcome, sometimes you just need to be flexible in the approach.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people who loves failure.
Challenges are a daily phenomenon for the entrepreneur.
Heaven is not wanting to be anywhere else.
That brings out our best.
We’ve all heard the statement, the ends justifies the means.
If you want to do anything extraordinary, it’s likely that you’re going to need to break some rules.
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.
Recently I was watching a video of our Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern, speaking about women’s suffrage.
