HERE’S a very simple rule for getting things done (which is another way of saying, “gaining values”). I call it the 5-Step rule. Simple name, big effect.
Step #1 Focus – activate your mind and look at reality. Don’t worry about what others tell you; what do you see?;
Step #2 Think – ask yourself questions. Lots of them, over and over and over;
Step #3 Choose – decide what action you are going to take;
Step #4 Commit – to the plan of action you just chose, don’t be distracted, go to it!;
Step #5 Add value – Don’t go half-arsed. Put your heart into it or go home.
The 5-Step Rule applies to big things, small things, and everything in between. From what you’ll have for breakfast to choosing a career. It even applies if you fluff a step – start again and re-apply the rule.
Focus. Think. Choose. Commit. Add Value.
Wash, rinse, repeat.
