My mother would in her wisdom encourage me to get better grades. Her take was that if I could aim at an extra 2 points per subject per term/semester, I would end the year measuring growth. This applied to sports as well, I was a swimmer and she encouraged me to make little improvements on my time.
My teenage mind could not see the wisdom in these words, in fact it came across as Mum just being Mum.
‘…a settled method of working that requires little effort and yields only barely acceptable results…’
Fast forward into adulthood and I am applying this to everything now:
my children’s grades….(now my grandson)
my direct reports: building on leads, relationships and conversions
my savings: compounding effect
my business: learning, applying, REPEAT
That which gets measured, gets done. One just needs to know what they what, and go for it.
Start off slow and gain momentum. I believe finishing #strong provides for a better journey experience.
It will not be easy, but as my guest on #tuesdaytalksatthree Lillian Ngala pointed out, take on the HARD THING rule, and conquer the fear of stepping out of your comfort zone. That that was once hard, becomes an enjoyable task, and yields results.
