Getting a Grip on Success

Here are key factors required for success:

Purpose leads to Priorities. When you know what your Purpose is, you can establish your Priorities.

Priorities lead to Plans. Priorities make you use judgment to choose some actions and activities over another.  Sometimes making these judgments is difficult, as they create dilemmas when either choice seems correct.  Hey, nobody said this would be easy!  Once you have your Priorities in order, you can make plans to achieve them.

Plans lead to Practices. Plans must have components of a sequence of activities attached to goals.  Plans and the activities that they include are supported by Practices—habits and disciplines—that force you into the mental, emotional, spiritual and logistical domains to do the things that achieve your priorities.

Practices lead to Performance. Habits born from practice build momentum.  Practice what you want to sustain.  Momentum creates mojo.  Mojo makes you shine in your performances.

Peak Performance requires Periodic Resets.  Taking time-out allows you to re-set Purpose, Priorities, Plans, and Practices and to re-gain Poise, the state of living in grace.

All that said:

Personalize your own Path Forward. Your path to success will be unique as you are.  That said, “steal with pride” from others who have become more successful than you—in any domain.

Punch through the MembraneWant something different?  Then step forward, breathe, and punch through the invisible bubble of status quo that surrounds you.
