We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto....wait that was a tornado
A daily struggle of mine is completing something long term. I feel as if I do a lot of things daily, but never get a lot done. Did that make sense?! My day starts at 4:30 in the morning and I am on the go until at least 9 or 10pm. You would think being awake that many hours that I would feel extremely productive...wrong! I feel as if I get many things done, but nothing complete. I'm going through the same motions, but never moving forward, or so it feels. I struggle and fight that Whirlwind, daily!
I think using the 4DX model will help me stop feeling that way. It requires me to set one goal and achieve it, then move on to another. I find the most interesting part about this model is that it isn't anything new or far-fetched. These are truly attainable goals and clear for anyone. I sometimes find myself looking for the latest and greatest, when that isn't always what works best. These are four simple strategies that work well, IF they are completed and followed. Nothing works unless you put in the work regardless of how simple it may seem.
I will say that the five stages are what I am currently wrapping my head around. I wouldn't say that they are anything mind boggling or something I'm struggling to understand, it's the simple fact that I'm slightly surprised it's so simple. I'm totally aware that the action of completing this strategy is completely different than just discussing it, but up until recently I was struggling to connect the dots and I finally feel like everything is becoming clear. Phew!
