The Critical Mistake You Need To Avoid To Reach Your Life Goals

“Never mistake activity for achievement.” – John Wooden

Just because you’re active doesn’t mean you’re productive.

The employee who goes to work, hops on Facebook, and responds to his unread inbox messages is actively engaged online…but he’s not accomplishing anything productive for his company.

The bachelorette who monitors her spending by keeping up with her receipts from each store purchase is active…but simply collecting data alone will not equate to her achieving tangible results such as reducing her student loan debt.

Activity is all about getting things done. Achievement is all about getting results.

The two are not one and the same.

How effective are you in using the time you have each day?

Will the activities you plan to pursue this week push you closer to achieving the results you so often dream about?

Remember, doing something is not the same as achieving something!

What is it that you truly want?

Take out time this week and evaluate your to-do list.

Focus your most intense effort only on those items from your to-do list that will help you achieve real progress & push you closer towards those things that you want and help you to ultimately arrive at your end goal.

    This was really helpful! I have adopted the “to do list” principle, but have allowed activity to pull me away from the list! This has gotten my attention, can’t mistake activity for achievement!

    That’s valuable information. It’s like shooting at a target & continually missing the mark. What’s encouraging is that it’s never to late to start getting results. Thank you!
