A wise farmer anticipates the seasons well. She prepares her fields in time. She plants the seed at the right time. She tends to her crop in time. She weeds, waters, and sprays the bugs. She harvests her crop in time. She saves some seed for the next season. She keeps some harvest to feed her family. The rest she takes to the market to earn a profit. In essence, a wise farmer gets things done!
Getting things done is one of the most powerful habits you can cultivate. It can bring lots of riches in all areas of your life. I know a brilliant young man who hardly gets things done. Getting an output from him is like extracting a tooth. You have to bargain, beg and threaten before he delivers an assignment. For this reason his fortunes have remained mediocre to say the least.
On the other hand, I know another person of average intelligence who has not progressed far in school. This guy is a go-getter. Very enterprising and hardworking. He just gets stuff done. Of course, he often makes several mistakes in his haste. But the point is he gets the job done! With his meager pay, he manages to save most of his pay in a unit trust account. He has started several small ventures. He is teaching himself how to read.
Procrastination is the thief of dreams. People who procrastinate don’t go far in life. Getting things done can literally change your life. Action is what turns dreams into reality. Do every day what needs to be done that day. Don’t worry about what you didn’t do yesterday for it is gone. Don’t do tomorrow’s work today because it is yet to come. Just do what needs to be done today.
Don’t underestimate doing small tiny tasks. You have no idea how the grand scheme of things works. Much may be relying on you completing a small task for great fortunes to be unlocked down the road. Don’t wait for motivation to complete a task. Simply do the task whether you feel like it or not.
Take massive action towards your dreams. You can’t claim you want to become rich and then act like an average person. You have to work harder than everyone else. You have to wake up early. You have to save more. You have to take on some risk. You have to stop wasting time watching TV. You have to take massive action!
Stop coming up with nice little cozy excuses for not doing the things you are supposed to be doing. The world doesn’t care for your excuses. We just want results.
Just get things done!
