KC39: Stop Majoring In Minors For A More Effective Life

KC39: Stop Majoring In Minors For A More Effective Life Episode

Feeling bogged down and not progressing much?

Often have much to do and still not moving ahead?

In today’s super quick episode…

Let’s talk about how we can have a more effective life

By being more conscious and aware

And making some small and significant tweaks!

My Personal Observation & Experience

Through personal observation and experience,

I’ve noticed this in myself and others that…

We have a tendency to be distracted

And caught up doing things that matter little to nothing at all

Sometimes, these things turn into a habit for us and…

Precious time is wasted every…

Single day and week tending to them

I won’t go into the specifics of…

What they might be as there are too many of them

Needless to say,

If we are to lead an effective and compelling life,

We can’t allow this to go on and become a lifestyle

I’m talking about majoring in minors which…

So many of us are guilty of doing so

Myself included!

Self-Examination

Take a minute or two now to…

Run through your typical day in detail and

Ask yourself these questions for…

Every single thing that you do…

“Does this really matter?”

“Is this aligned to my purpose, mission & vision?”

“How’s this helping me progress in life?”

If your answers to these are MOSTLY a no and…

You’ll need to be brutally honest with yourself,

Then you can begin to do something about it because…

It all starts with being truly conscious

I have a personal mantra that goes like this…

“If it doesn’t matter, don’t bother” or shorter still…

“Don’t matter, don’t bother!”

This reminds me to stay focused on…

What truly matters which you’ll know…

If you have invested the time to…

Clarify for yourself and your life

As we close, there are 2 ways to treat this episode…

One is to move on with life as if this doesn’t really matter…

And the second is to have a desire to do something about it…

Knowing that what we do today matters

If we are to truly succeed in life,

Then we must certainly stop majoring in minors

If you belong to the 2nd group of people,

For a few days running,

List down every single thing that you do…

From the time you’re up each day till you go to bed

And go through the 3 questions I mentioned earlier

When you do this,

You’ll awaken to the small yet significant tweaks

You’ll need and want to implement in your life

Let’s keep moving forward powerfully and effectively today!

KC38: How Failing Fast, Early & Forward Can Assist You Succeed Faster!

KC38: How Failing Fast, Early & Forward Can Assist You Succeed Faster! Episode

Are you someone who is…

Afraid of failing or of failure itself?

Do you have a desire to succeed sooner & more often?

In this short & succinct episode…

I’ll share why failing fast, early & forward can…

Assist you succeed at your goal faster!

My Observation & Experience

In my work & walk with people…

I’ve noticed time and time again that…

Fear often cripples and even…

Paralyses people from moving forward

In a state of unconsciousness,

People don’t realize if they don’t allow…

The possibility of a failure in their strategy

They won’t achieve success sooner which is…

Really what their conscious minds do want

Do bear in mind that in reality…

Failure is DEFINITELY NOT the opposite of success…

It’s part of SUCCESS!

In our context, a failure is simply finding out what…

Doesn’t actually work strategically in…

Achieving your clearly defined vision or goals

Personal Example

At this point, I’ll give you a very fresh & simple example

Just yesterday…

My daughter Zoe wanted to learn how…

To ride the bicycle which my wife & I bought for her 2 days ago

As she got on her bicycle and started riding,

She lost her balance and fell

Getting back on almost immediately,

She started riding again and within mere minutes,

Fell a 2nd time in the same session

Not being afraid of getting back on as many times as required and…

Understanding what causes her to fall each time will be crucial & needful…

To her journey of learning to ride her bicycle well

As a result, I know she’s well on her way to…

Being able to cycle properly before too long

This APPLIES EVERYWHERE in life

If you’re dating someone and the relationship doesn’t work out,

Get clear on why this is the case and…

Either have a go at the same person again or move on to the next

It’s the same thing in business or if you’re simply doing sales!

When it comes to inventing our modern day light bulb,

Thomas Edison failed fast & forward and…

Finally succeeded after the much touted 1000 attempts

He didn’t allow his first 999 attempts to define him as a failed person

Key Summary

Therefore, the key lesson is to…

Not allow your failure in strategy to define you as a failed person!

Figure out personally if it’s a failure of vision or strategy

As we close, do note that…

If you don’t fail fast & early enough,

You will not get too many opportunities to fail forward

This is just simple math and

Failing forward is simply…

Your stepping stone towards your goal!

Now, I’ll leave you with this question…

“In which area do you need to…

Fail faster & forward so you can succeed faster?”
