Focus On The Fundamentals
Self-improvement is a huge topic, so let’s try to make some sense of it. There are so many books to read and podcasts to listen to, but among all of that information are a few universal truths that I want to quickly outline for you.
First, it’s all about application. One of my favorite personal development minds, Darren Hardy says the adage that “knowledge is power” is incorrect. Knowledge is potential power, like electricity in a light switch. It’s once you turn on the switch, or apply what you’ve learned, that you’ll get it to start working for you.
Then there’s something that a lot of people overlook without realizing it. There’s a quote that goes “you can’t improve what you don’t measure.” So something that’s foundational to improving anything about your life is having a high-quality performance tracking system. That way, you know how you’re actually doing, you can measure your progress, and you can make changes to get new and better results.
Right now 99% of people on their self improvement journey are using biased, faulty, subjective measurement systems and therefore are getting a biased, faulty, and interpreted view into their performance.
Lastly, it’s always about the fundamentals. When we talk about raising our standards it means that we do the fundamentals with more consistency or at a higher level. And this is true for everyone looking to maximize their potential.
There are fundamentals for your health - Exercising, eating healthy, and getting enough rest, so that you have the energy to show up as the best version of yourself.
There are fundamentals to the way we spend our time - Staying focused, being organized with our todos and tasks, and creating a plan for the day so that you’re investing your time in the things that are most important to you.
And then there are fundamentals in your mindset - So that you see the world through a lens of gratitude and abundance, and you cultivate self-discipline so that you actually follow through on your good intentions.
No matter if you’re just getting started or you’re far along on your self-improvement, you reach your next tier by improving the quality of your fundamentals.
