31 Days to Becoming a Better Leader
Day #9: The Performance Secret – DVDs
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. – Jim Rohn
We define magnificent vision and mission with incredible objectives and powerful goals, and then we sit back and go, “Wow!” It seems so big that we feel overwhelmed.
We just defined how to begin breaking down those bigger end results into achievable steps. Here’s the genealogy:
- Long-Term Objective – 3-5 years
- Short-Term Goals – 1-year or less
- Milestones – 30-day benchmarks
- Action Plans – Weekly to-do lists
- Now, the special secret – Hugh’s answer to feeling overwhelmed – the DVD
What’s a DVD, anyway?
Daily Value Deliverables
- 3 baby-steps per day
- Very small actions
- Stated as accomplishments
- All related to the goals
This one step will ensure your success more than any other one. Just think…if you define three small accomplishments per day, that’s 15 per week, and 60 per month.
If you completed 60 baby steps per month, how much would that impact your overall success?
What if you installed this system into the culture you are responsible for leading?
Do the math…60 completed DVDs per month times 10 team members…now you are leading a high-performing team!
