The Secret To Getting Things Done

The Secret To Getting Things Done

What's the difference between those that do and those that don't?

After decades of asking myself and thousands of others that same question, I have come to the conclusion that your success comes down to just one thing.

Whether you're trying to lose weight, save money, climb mountains, win a grand final, run a marathon, get a promotion, pretty much anything! One thing sets the winners apart from the losers, the achievers from the underachievers, the successful from the unsuccessful.

I have watched thousands of documentaries, read thousands of stories, and interviewed thousands of people and in every single case it's the same.

It's not having a positive mindset (although that helps), it's not having a secret formula (although having a plan helps), it's not where you were born or where you went to school, and it's not who your friends are or how much money you have.

The One Thing Is This

Go-getters decide. They decide to do something and once they decide to do something they won't let anything get in their way, they keep at it until the goal is reached.

So the power is in the decision. It's not a decision to try something, it's not a decision to give it a go, it's not a decision to maybe get something done. It's a decision made with absolute conviction, backed with absolute commitment, wound around an unwavering desire to get the results.

I have seen people make the decision to change their world in the blink of an eye, sometimes after being wishy-washy for years. I have seen people half commit and wonder why they don't get to the end.

Until you're in the game, you cannot win the game.
