Today’s Thought: JUST TWEAK IT (a little).
One of the biggest mistakes we can make is to, as the older folks say, “throw out the baby with the bath water.” In other words, just because you fail…doesn’t mean it’s over and that you should totally change directions. Just because you don’t see the results you want doesn’t mean you throw in the towel. Sometimes all you need to do is change things up a little bit, tweak things, and try again.
Many times we are on the edge of success IN OUR FAILURES! Pause and think about that.
Sometimes you just have to…
So instead of throwing in the towel or completely trashing your plan as you head into the new year, first ask yourself three questions:
- What WORKED? Chances are it wasn’t ALL bad.
- What DID NOT work for me? Do your best to pinpoint exactly where things went left. You can’t change what you don’t understand.
- HOW can I set myself up for success next time? What small change could you try to get a better result?
Again, most of the time, your plan is NOT all wrong, it just needs a little tweak. Small changes can make a big difference ;).
Until next time,
P.S. If you need help figuring out your tweak, let’s hop on the phone and figure this out. You can schedule a time HERE.
