There’s no mystery achievement in business
As I was driving between appointments today, I heard one of my favorite bands on the radio. The Pretenders were singing Mystery Achievement. And I guess my brain is hardwired to connect things like that to business. So I looked up the word, achievement – a thing done successfully by effort, courage, or skill – There’s the dictionary definition of the word. And I love that combination. Effort. Courage. Skill.
So, as it turns out, there’s no mystery to achievement.
You just gotta put in the effort. But how do you get started? Well, hone your skills. And muster up your courage. And get going. Because somewhere in your mind you know where you wanna end up. The Pretenders song asks, “Where’s my sandy beach?” Your sandy beach might not be a beach at all. It might be a metaphor for a little house on a lake. Or a getaway in the mountains. Doesn’t matter where. What matters is knowing if something is currently out of reach, maybe you just need to reach harder.
Focused forward motion will help you make the stretch to get there. I’ve always found that when I have a clear target it mind, I can almost always hit it. Because clarity helped me to find and get the right people to mentor me and help me strategize. Then, I was able to build a system that helped me create the habits necessary to keep me on task. And that’s how I’ve been able to use my time wisely and stay organized.
But maybe you’re a shoot-from-the-hip kind of entrepreneur.
You like living on the edge. And you don’t want something like a boring business coach CRM system stifling your creativity. Or your spontaneity. If so, stop reading this now and get back in your game. But if you’d rather answer questions than ask them, like the lyrics in The Pretenders song, maybe we should talk. It’s your life. And I’m just somebody who knows the way to the beach.
Mystery achievement you’re so unreal
Where’s my sandy beach? Yeah
I had my dreams like everybody else
But they’re out of reach
So, when you’re really, really ready to get ready, get RondaReady and…
