Scenario: "Dude, just plan everything before you do anything. Yay!" You're about to race across 3,000 miles. What do you do?
- You get the resources you'll need.
- You ask for experienced advice.
- You get the people you need on the journey.
Then, you start going. When you're on the trip, you discover:
- You change plans according to current realities.
- You detour certain areas to arrive quicker.
- You take stops to recharge yourself.
Yet, one thing always stays constant: "Everything I do guides me to that finish line." That's akin to leading a fabulous life. You know you're !@#$%^ rock-star when everything you do leads to your ultimate goal.
You start doing what matters most.Before you do anything, you psychologically start thinking: "How can I make the biggest leap to my goal?" Then, you plan your actions accordingly.
You become smartly productive.You won't waste your precious kick-butt time with unnecessary junk -- or, spending a kabillion hours doing something that moves you a sucky two inches toward your ultimate goal.
You become ridiculously happier.When you're making progress, you release happy brain chemicals that produces that oh-so-sexy-good-feeling. (The corollary: Seeing yourself making no progress cripples your soul.)
Progress: Filthy good.
The Roadmap to Fabulousity
- Choose your ultimate goal.
- From this day forward: "Everything I do guides me to my ultimate goal as quickly as possible."
Tips For That Ultimate Goal
- Make it big.
Make it something that (1) you can achieve, and (2) inspires you to rock every-!@#$%^-day.
- Keep it concrete.
That is, you'll know when you've reached that freakish goal -- where you'll then set an even higher milestone. Otherwise, you'll wander aimlessly -- constantly doubting your every action.
"What about relaxing and playing?!"
Formula 1 drivers need frequent pit-stops to refuel their juice. Likewise, your body uses breaks to refuel your kick-ass-energy reserves. Without breaks, you'll eventually run on a snail's pace. (Imagine running across the country without refueling.)
What do "breaks" include?
Breaks include anything that refuels you juices for some more butt-kicking later on. Some examples:
- Reading a novel.
- Playing ball with the homies.
- Vacationing faraway.
- Going on a dinner date.
Seek your world-inspiring goal.
Then, chase that down and beat that mutha-!@#$%^ into submission.
Destination. Car. Go.
