Three Simple Rules in Life
As the famous sage Yoda once said, “Try not. DO or DO not. There is no ‘try’.”
Sometimes even the best leaders can get trapped, spending too much time talking, too much time planning, too much time ‘what-if’ing.
Not enough leadership.
And not enough time following through on promises.
Not enough accountability.
Not enough time DO-ing.
Fear of failure doesn’t have to hold you back. Be intentional when taking those first steps.
Establish your priorities. Focus on what matters.
Then commit to taking action.
There are three simple rules in life:
- If you do not GO AFTER what you want, you’ll never have it.
- If you do not ASK, the answer will always be NO.
- If you do not break out of your COMFORT ZONE you’ll always be stuck in the same place.
