One of the most beautiful things about TJM is that there are different strategies for different outcomes.
There’s so much to learn.
You can really dive down deep into all of the material too. You keep going deeper and you keep learning more useful stuff.
And then it happens.
You come up for air and you realise you’ve done all of this learning and not taken any action in two weeks.
You need to course correct.
The learning’s valuable. But it’s only any good to you if you start putting it into action.
Here’s what I do.
If I’ve dived a little deep and not taken action for a while, I’ll sit down with a scrap of paper and jot down my life goals. And I’ll write down how much work I’m going to put in each day to achieve that goal.
I have a few for 2019.
I want to grow the tribe, so that’s going to take a couple hours of my time every day.
I want to get better at golf, so maybe that’s another hour per day spent on practising.
Then there’s the horse riding. That a little bit more time each week.
Do you see what I’m doing here? I’m creating a plan of action for myself so that I can get back to business.
Now, I know that I’m a single bloke with no kids. I don’t have the same time restraints that many TJM members have.
But the key thing is that you figure out how to take action around the commitments that you already have.
Think about that deep dive you took into the materials. How can you apply what you learned to your current schedule? What life goals do you have and what do you need to do to achieve them?
Remember that motivation is a fluke. It’s temporary and it’s not always going to be there.
Don’t wait for it to strike before you take any action.
Create your plan so you know what you need to do and when you’re going to do it.
I believe in you.
