Wealthy, successful people track the things that are important in moving them forward in life. When we monitor certain behavior, choices and daily activities, we are able to measure our progress. Tracking what we do in life forces awareness. We become aware of those things that are moving us forward and holding us back.
How many calories do you eat every day? How many are junk food calories? How much do you exercise every day? How much do you set aside in savings every pay period? How many things do you accomplish every day? How much do you read for self-improvement every day? What have you done today to move you forward towards achieving a big goal, major purpose or lifelong dream? How much did you spend today, last week, last month? How many people did you call on their birthday last year? How many new business contacts did you establish last month? How many new customers or clients or patients did you have last month?
Wealthy, successful people know the answer to these questions. Take one small step forward by tracking just on aspect of your life you’d like to improve on this month. Next month add another. Keep doing this for six months and your eyes will begin to open. Starting today make a habit of monitoring every important thing you do in life.
