I’m sure by now we all know that success isn’t something that just happens. It’s usually a torturous task that can go on for many years. I’m sure we also all know how important goal setting is. Regardless of your field, there’s a sure fire way to make sure you stay motivated long enough to get to your goal. Note how I refer to fruits as achievements or successes.
1. Define the fruits at the top of the tree.
This is your long term goal. What sort of achievement will will define a success in your career. What are you working towards? Write that thing down. The highest fruit is always the sweetest yet it takes the most effort to get there.
2. Find the lowest lying fruit and grab them
My mom taught me this one. Imagine working 5 years with no achievement whatsoever. I don’t know if I’d be able to make it. Those mini successes help us stay motivated while we climb up higher for the fruit at the top of the tree. These mini achievements should be a lot easier for you to reach. Something you can accomplish in one or two sessions. Nothing too major. These fruits probably wont be the sweetest, who wants to walk around with an empty fruitbasket, get me? The feeling of success will help you continue climbing the tree.
3. Many fruit pickers make light work
Get a team of like-minded individuals (if possible). These people should be willing to jump on any campaign you run. It’s so hard to find good help but when you select a good team then reaching the high fruit will be easy. Remember, many hands make light work.
Split your hustle between high fruit and low lying fruit and you will be well on your way to staying motivated while you gun down what you have planned.
I know a lot of the things I say on here are quite straightforward, but I think it’s quite important that the information is easily digestible. Il write something complex about scales and advanced music composition next week :P.
