Everywhere people talk about success they focus on the doing- do it faster and better. That is commendable and certainly true but thatâ€™s only one aspect of the Success Making Machine and fails to get the most of your actions. Some of the conversations even address the thinking- getting goals and planning for them. This is important because without knowing where youâ€™re going how will you get there. But it misses using broader planning- such as the ATE system- eliminate, delegate automate to achieve success.
The biggest blunder though is missing the enjoyment. Successful people enjoy what they do. They work to make their work more enjoyable. So a goal is to make their day to day life more enjoyable.
Case in point is the
10 Essentials for Success published on Millionaire Mommy Next Door. It addresses many important aspects of success, it even addresses passion:
Find what you love to do – you will never â€œworkâ€ again.
But it fails to address â€œEnjoyâ€.
* DO more of what you like, do less of what you dont like
* Do something you enjoy- refresh/rejuvenate yourself.
* Eliminate stress
More on Enjoy later.
Whatâ€™s surprising is that it seems the Millionaire Mommy Next Door seems to have figured it out herself but didnâ€™t mention it. She retired early (at 40) by realizing she didnâ€™t need material things to enjoy life (GOAL). So now she can be retired and do what she wants (her blog and raising a family- more goals) rather than being a slave to â€œthingsâ€.
