Arguably the Biggest “Secret” of Success
“Shorten the time between the idea and the implementation of the idea.” – Dan Kennedy
In his spectacular book, “The Phenomenon”, Dan Kennedy discusses how to get more done in the next 12 months than you have in the last 12 years. He calls this The Phenomenon. In his book, he describes how this is accomplished. One key thought is to simply get off the couch or the office chair and make things happen.
General George Patton said it this way,
“Wars are won by people who actually go out and do something.”
Napoleon Hill addressed this decades before General Patton or “General” Kennedy. He said “When you have talked yourself into what you want, stop talking and begin saying it with your actions.”
I spend an inordinate amount of time demonstrating and teaching that you can accomplish so much more in your personal and professional lives. But you’ve got to make that decision. Many of you have, but you haven’t taken the next step.
You need to develop a plan (preferably on the back of a napkin) and GET GOING. The longer you delay, the harder it will be to start. Nobody’s plan is perfect. Mine aren’t! But (HERE IS THE POINT) most of us just let time slip through our fingers. It turns into months and years before we actually go out and do something.
If you know what you want and you know what to do, start this very second. Right now. Be flexible and deal with things as they develop. Simply by deciding to move AND MOVING you will change your life.
If you don’t know what to do, then follow somebody who does. Some suggestions are the doctors who are sharing their best advice at the AAPPM meetings, or the doctors and experts in the Top Practices Mastermind Group. Or the great authors and thinkers in the books and programs you can find on the Top Practices Website right from the home page in Rem’s Must Read List.
Shorten the time between when you get the idea to do something, and when you decide to act, and you will achieve miracles. You will achieve more in the next 12 months than you have in the last 12 years.
Every single big winner I know has an extreme bias towards action. They are always trying to collapse their time frames to execution.
Don’t reinvent the wheel. Don’t consult your mother or your palm reader before you get moving.
The good news: This is all up to you and you can start right now.
