QUOTE 5 – MARCH 2016
I love working with high achievers and one habit that always stands out among them is their sense of urgency. It is an inner drive and desire to get on with the job quickly and get it done fast. Here are a few quotes to get you moving urgently!
Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
Progressive improvement beats delayed perfection.
This quote from esteemed author Mark Twain has a beautiful simplicity. Moving forward toward your vision in progressively improving increments will take you much further than waiting for the perfect moment to start trying.
Highly productive people take the time to think, plan, and set priorities. They then launch quickly and strongly toward their goals and objectives.
You don’t go from good to great overnight. It takes incremental, daily actions. Plan for your success too.
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
Leonardo da Vinci
Da Vinci couldn’t know or research all the ways to paint a masterpiece, he had to put brush to canvas. However, Da Vinci wasn’t just an artist and a scientist. He had a staggering array of accomplishments as a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer (a map maker), botanist and a writer. Next time you want to trick yourself into thinking you’re too busy to move with urgency, think of the incredible achievements of those who stay motivated.
Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
In the final analysis, nothing will help you more in your career for you to have the reputation for getting the important things done quickly and well. Do it now!
Don’t waste a moment. Go and get stuck into action now! Set those deadlines and don’t forget to reward yourself too.
Wishing you a sense of urgency this week in all you do!
To your Extraordinary Success
