This is yet another important aspect of success. How has your timing been lately? Do you feel rushed? Do you think lights never go your way in traffic? Did you miss a chance at being successful at some point because the “timing” wasn’t right?
Timing can come when you want it to. There is nothing stopping you from making the timing right. Only you can control your ultimate destiny. If you want to be financially free then be in that state of mind. If you want to get a better position in the company you are in work toward that end. One thing that might help is writing down exactly what you want. This will help direct your mindset to that end.
Another exercise you can do to improve timing is more planning. You know what you have to do today so make a plan. Do not start getting ready 10 minutes before hand. Plan and be ready. There is absolutely no reason you have to choose waiting until the last moment to accomplish your tasks. If you get them out of the way earlier the less you have to do later.
“I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything… at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.”
~ Dan Millman
When do you do your activities? Are you the person who does a chore at the beginning or the end of the day? If you can change just one or two things around how much more do you think you can accomplish in life to make a success? A phone call is easy enough to make. Chores are normally simple and if we do not put them off normally will not take more than a few minutes. Even large chores like painting a house can be placed in a nice chronological order so that it can be done in a reasonable time if you are doing it yourself.
To make planning a habit it must be done every day. Some people will sit down every morning to go over their goals. Others go over their goals at least once a week. It depends upon your personality as to how dedicated you are to succeeding in whatever area of life you are looking to accomplish. I believe you can do anything you put your mind to. The question is do you believe in yourself?
