How is it already Friday?! This week I’ve had one of the most productive weeks of the year and it feels So. Good. Especially after a low February, it’s rewarding to be back at 100%. I know I keep yapping on about the book Option B but man, it’s really helped me get out of my slump. It’s given me a fresh perspective on life (deep, I know) and it’s genuinely interesting to read!
I recently had a conversation with Greg about productivity. In a book that he had finished, the author spoke about being relentless. About not only being determined to get things done, but going about it in a relentless way. It struck a cord with me. The idea is to not just get things done, but to get things done in an “all in” fashion. Not necessarily striving for perfection but giving it all the energy you got. It sounds simple and self explanatory. But is it?
I’ve done both. I’ve gotten things done with a half hearted mind. And I’ve gotten things done with the fullest of intentions. There is a difference and none of the two include doing things perfectly. It’s about choosing to be in a relentless mindset. I’ve applied that new mindset to the things I truly care about and it’s made such a difference for me.
Make It Count
From my recent experiences I’ve had the saying Make It Count on my mind. Whatever it is that I want to do, I want to make it count. The things that truly matter to me. It goes along with being relentless but maybe even a step further. Being relentless in what you do, so that what you leave behind, counts. Am I making sense? I don’t know…
Both of these are simple messages – and you may be thinking: This is nothing groundbreaking you’re telling me Victoria. I’ve already KNOWN about this. But my point is that no matter how many times you hear something, it can take years for you to actually fully understand those things and implement them in your daily life. I love Nike’s slogan Just Do It for the exact same reason. Just do it. No matter what your dreams or plans are. We’ve only got one life so we might as well make it count.
That’s all I got for my Friday Favorites wisdom ha! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments too. In the meantime, I hope you have a relaxing weekend and Easter if you’re celebrating! – V
