2010 warm up
The thing about planning
I loved what Eric..my 'STOMPER' team mate said the other day.
"My plan for today is written down, that's what it says" to paraphrase.
There is NO negotiation dude....the plan is written, who am I talking to in my head. There is NO discussion here...if it has been planned then it gets done. THAT'S IT.
The fact that the plan has been written negates any discussion whatsoever.
This is SO powerful that I plan to steal it from Eric...I know he won't mind coz we are team mates...and if I use it to STOMP all over the Inner Circle then it's 'all smiles' right.
Most of us negotiate everything we do...'I'll go to the shops on the way home'. On the way we say " Ahh I don't feel like stopping now, I'll do it later'...or 'I'll do my tax return next week.' Next week creeps up with speed that would do an F1 justice and its, 'Oh well, there is always the day after tomorrow' and so we go, bashing our self image to pieces because we can never keep committments we make, to ourselves.
Once you start doing that internally it's one short step away from doing it to others, and worse, family.
Eventually 'I'll see', is met with raised eybrows and the unspoken comment....yeah, we know what that means OK see ya.
That's why a written plan is so powerful...There is NO negotiation. Think about plans carefully before you commit to them, then when it comes time to DO....JUST G E T I T D O N E
Upper body tomorrow....can I wait .....HARDLY...ROLL ON 5AM
