You’ve probably heard the phrase, “money loves speed.” That’s because it’s not enough to have a goal or a good idea. You must quickly implement it in order to have success.
This doesn’t mean you can’t have long term goals, of course. But the forward motion you gain from focusing on getting things done quickly will help you achieve even your long term goals too.
Let me give an example. Twenty minutes after Jason Mark used an iPad for the very first time he came up with an idea for an iPad bracket. The bracket serves as a frame for the iPad, much like a picture frame. It lets you mount the iPad on a wall for presentations in meetings, displays in museums, etc.
Three days after coming up with the idea he presented it to a manufacturing company and within 21 days they had a working prototype, marketing plan, website and their first sale, which came an hour after the iBracket was mentioned on a blog. Note that this was a physical product yet still they got it out the door in record speed.
With today’s technology and social media it’s very possible for you to achieve similar things with great speed. This applies to any area of your life, like fitness goals, plans to redecorate, saving money for a vacation, etc. Speed helps everything.
Here are 5 steps for you to accomplish your goals with more speed:
1. Set an audacious goal. Make sure it’s one you are passionate about. That passion will energize and sustain you in the early going. By audacious I mean a goal that might seem outrageous on the surface or hard to achieve but one that will motivate you because the potential payoff is great.
