Lets think about our business or job for a moment. If each task we set out to do was a success, then we would build momentum toward a successful - day - month - year. If each thing we do was a failure...well that would not be good.
Chances are we set out to do some tasks that are successes, but other times some of the tasks turn out to be failures.
(Think of tasks as appointments, follow up calls, customer service related tasks and so on.)
The more worthy and valuable "tasks" we complete in a successful manner the better off we are! So as you move forward with your "to do list" start making this your mantra. "What can I do to make this a successful task?"
Then do each thing in a most successful manner. The bigger the task (or appointment) the better it is then to do it in a successful manner.
Sounds simple. But we really need to put a little more awareness and diligence to what we do to see in advance of doing the task of what the success of doing it will be. However, doing this causes us to visualize the end result and helps us reach our goals!
