In order to be an achiever you can leave no room for procrastination. Like any habit, good or bad, the more repetition, the easier the act becomes. Redundancy can range from being tardy or dishonest to volunteering or donating. Every act shows a benefit, as well as a price, but the easier the task is the quicker the results typically are.
How many people have you heard state at one time, “Somebody should think of a way to…”? Consider that sentence word for word; who are they suggesting, and why aren’t they the prime considered applicants? While it is unmistakable of where the idea seems to have originated, what is the reason for its abandonment so soon in the game? The conversation seldom leaves the room. In all actuality, the purpose for considering and sharing is frequently someone fishing for acceptance. The idea was dead before even being given a chance.
Stop and think for a moment how many ideas you have, and how many you mention? In office meetings is the prime area to contemplate this issue. You have an idea which is actually plausible, but can’t think of the miraculous ending, so you throw the idea to the wayside instead of giving someone else a chance to easily come up with a solution. Instantaneous failure.
The next time you have an idea, share your thoughts with someone who can validate your ability to consider concerns not previously taken into account. Your office just might be running more smoothly, and you might be the one your supervisor comes to the next time the company needs ideas. By being proactive and dealing with the issues instead of shoving them to the back, don’t be surprised when your supervisor begins coming to you for your opinions or advice.
Have you ever had to work with someone who is always late to get the work in, and it’s always someone else’s fault? Perhaps they were supposed to have brought something for a meeting and were unprepared, but it was because someone forgot to remind them. Do you know someone like that who uses alibis on a frequent basis?
What about the parents who tell their child to do something, and by the time they have gone through all the reasons and rationalizations they could have done it themselves? Sometimes they do because it’s easier, and sometimes they don’t because they’re good parents. Why are they good parents? Everyone knows actions form habits, and the child will eventually learn to complete a task without instruction by practicing.
Going back to the first paragraph, the person who appears unreliable, can you imagine the childhood? Did this person do as instructed, or have a tantrum until the adults gave in? I’ll bet you can tell. Is it too late for these people? Absolutely not! What one needs to remember is that while a hundred and one excuses can be given for an incomplete or a late assignment, it’s time for a reality check.
By accomplishing the task, and making room for more and better, not only can the person feel as if something is being complete but will appear better than others, undoubtedly reaping rewards from superiors. Who knows? Perhaps by finishing the job, a desk with a view is in the cards. They certainly won’t be giving the promotion to the one who forgot to bring the presentation!
When you pull out the thesaurus and look up this word, what do you think you will find? This is one of those words that if you say it aloud, and consider what it means, the answer will appear to you as undeniably as you staring at the words right now. Everyone has the ability to be successful, so why aren’t they? Most people who are not successful really don’t care, but some do and don’t quite know how to accomplish the feat.
These articles are for the smaller group–the ones who are unhappy, know they are worthy of more, and have an interest in discovering how to get it! When you fall into this category, climb aboard and hold on tight, as you are on your way to a “Successability”–your ability to have the success you deserve.
