Can you literally do anything? I don’t really know your motivation to answer that. You can ask someone if you can accomplish “X,” but in reality you are really just asking for their permission.
When you ask for someone’s advice when they have no vested interest in the subject, you are really just asking for their permission.
In this day and age, if we don’t know the answer to something, we type the question in to our search engine, and see what pops out.
Most of the time when we do that we are really just checking to be sure someone has been in the same situation we have been in. Almost as if SIRI is going to give us approval if we ask.
The real questions we should be asking are to ourselves.
How to Do Anything!
What am I trying to do?
This question seems crazy, but in order to get somewhere you have to start, and you have to know where to go. So when you have a goal in mind, ask yourself (not Google) exactly where you are trying to head.
How can I do it?
This point isn’t time for a mental breakdown or a “beat yourself up” session. It is time for you to figure out currently what you have.
If you are trying to cook something, first you decide what you want, then you decide what you need. No goal is any different than making that grilled cheese sandwich.
How does this end?
Some might call this “crap or get off the pot” time. What do you feel will be the outcome while you are on this path?
Again, this is not the time to consult Google. You have to fundamentally ask yourself if this is going to go in the direction you want it to.
Can I change my direction?
Who knew the key was in a yes or no question? So far, you have said I have a goal… next you figured out how to do said goal… then you asked how it may end, now you are asking yourself what if everything goes wrong?
Not to sound negative, but this is where we keep from being disillusioned, when part of our cycle breaks.
The key to an achievable goal is to be flexible.
Now back to positive, this is where we have a plan of contingency, when plan “A” breaks. We don’t want to put all of our eggs in one basket, but we do want to have perseverance.
That is the next step. We have our goal, our desired outcome, and an ideology. Now put things into action.
Check your progress.
If you are gaining progress on your goal, Congratulations! You did it, and you need to keep moving forward.
If you aren’t coming closer to your goal, then guess what? You aren’t trying hard enough!
Your plan isn’t going to work.
Do you remember how we got negative and asked “what-if” a bit back? We came up with a back up plan! Now we start with that plan. Because only crazy people keep doing the same things and expect different results.
Now you go through this entire process again and again… until………….
