Why do some people get more things done than others?

Why do some people talk about doing things and then …end up not doing them?

Each of us is given the same number of hours every day, but some people make more things happen in the same time. Why is that?

Well, they have learnt an important, and yet mostly untaught, life skill. They have learnt how to go from “talk” to “action”. They have discovered the secret of “Doing”. And yet, becoming a Doer is simple enough. It is a habit that we can all acquire.

This post takes us through the simple steps that every person, every project, every business, will probably encounter on their way to making stuff happen successfully.

1.    SET YOURSELF A GOAL  you can’t score unless you have one

2.    SET YOURSELF A DEADLINE  don’t make it too easy, a crazy deadline can help

3.    DEFINE SUCCESS AT THE START  Money, happiness, saving the world…., that sort of thing

4.    MAKE A PLAN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN  Remember, most things fail, because they never….start

5.    BUILD A TEAM TO HELP YOU  No matter how brilliant you are, you can’t do it alone

6.    GET THE TEAM TO SIGN UP, HEAD AND HEART  Tell them the dream, play down the bit about all the hard work , late nights, e.c.

7.    UNDERSTANT THERE WILL BE HURDLES, BARRIERS

8.    ACCEPT THEM

9.    BUT DEFEAT THEM

10.  WORK EACH DAY TOWARDS THE GOAL  obssesion

11.  A LITTLE CAN DO A LOT  especially if repeated, if repeated, if…

12. EACH DAY IMAGINE THE DREAM, AS IF YOU’VE ALREADY DONE IT  It may sound weird, but it will help

13. UNDERSTANT THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR ENERGY

14. YOUR STUBBORNNESS

15.  YOUR PERSISTENCE

16.  EVEN SO HALF WAY THROUGH A PROJECT IS NORMALLY THE LOWEST POINT. YOUR ARE NEITHER AT THE START NOR AT THE END

17.  ENERGY DIPS, MOTIVATION SLIPS

18.  IT’S TIME TO REMIND YOURSELF WHY YOU STARTED ALL THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE  …hello dream, you got a minute

19. IT’S TIME TO LOOK BACK AT HOW FAR YOU HAVE COME  wow, no way!

20.  AND IT’S TIME TO GIVE YOUR SELF SOME EXTRA MOTIVATION

21.  SO, TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU’RE DOING

22.  TELL THE WORLD WYH YOU’RE DOING IT  even if they don’t get it, tell them anyway

23. AND TELL THEM YOUR CRAZY DEADLINE  Let them feel your urgency

24.  YOU’VE PUT A LOT OF PRESSURE ON YOURSELF  that’s not such a bad thing

25. IT WILL GIVE YOU ENERGY FOR THE FINAL PUSH

26.  THEN ONE DAY, MANY, MANY MOONS AFTER STARTING, YOU FINALLY CROSS YOUR FINISHING LINE

27.  YOU’VE IMPRESSED A LOT OF PEOPLE  including that person called you

28.  YOU’VE LEARNT HOW TO GO FROM HAVING AN IDEA TO MAKING IT HAPPEN

29.  YOU ARE A DOER
