“The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one’s self. And the arbitrariness of the constraint serves only to obtain precision of execution.”
Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)
Russian Composer, Immigrated to France and Later the US
Considered Most Influential Composer of 20th Century
Welcome to 2013!!
I was listening to the radio on Tuesday (New Years Day) and heard the following commercials run repeatedly:
- Plastic Surgeons – get liposuction
- Weight Watchers – get on the program now
- Plastic Surgery – get the beauty you always wanted
- Goodwill – urging you to clean out your junk
How often have you heard the catch phrase: “New Year, New You!” It seems every fashion, fitness and gossip magazine has that blazing across the top.
Most of us consider the new year the moment to start over. Marketers know this. This is the biggest month of the year for the self-help industry.
I want you to go against the grain.
Only scrap your plan if you are implementing on all cylinders. Re-evaluate your implementation – not your plan. Chances are, you are not failing from a bad system or process – it’s how you implement that is the problem.
But, if you are flying by the seat of your pants: it is time to get a new plan.
Accountability is key to proper impelementation. Get an Accountability Partners Group to follow through better this year. I’ve developed a great program that will get you going strong. Get a sounding board and a committed professional group to help you reach your potential in 2013.
