When it feels good don’t do it.

How easy it is to allow what feels good get in the way of what IS good. This tends to be particularly challenging for female financial advisors as we always have a hundred things to do on our list. How many times have you looked at your calendar, you know you need to make some follow up calls but you decide to clear some small nagging problems first. Next thing you know the day is over, you never made those calls and you leave feeling less than satisfied. I know because this happened to me. Since that day I learned that If you truly want to be successful, I mean really successful you MUST learn to overcome these distractions

One day I was headed to the Library for a Focus Friday. This is a day where I pack up my laptop and head to the library for some intensive marketing and business planning work. It was about 9:00 am I had already worked out and set the stage for a very productive day but then the gremlins hit me. On my route to the library I thought about those few errands I needed to run, the grocery, laundry maybe even a quick trip to Marshals (just to make sure I didn’t miss out on something new). The thought of completing those few simple errands made me feel good and I could already feel my mind justifying why I should do those “To do” items first, I could always go to the library AFTER.
Then my success brain kicked in, it was like there was a full on conversation going on in my head. The success brain said “No Adri, stick with the program and do what you need to do first, want to do second” I was so tempted to take that left into Starbucks instead of that right into the Library, the voices in my head were going back and forth until I finally made that Right Turn and denied myself those “feel good” errands and went directly to the Library.

Once settled into the library while getting started created some discomfort before I knew it it was noon and I headed across the street to get some lunch. I didn’t head home nor did I go do those errands why? I was on a role and wanted to go straight back to the library to complete a few more hours of productive work. When I finally left the library I thought about doing those errands and decided they could wait for another day. I was feeling too good; way to pleased with my day to cloud it up with annoying errands (even going to Marshals didn’t interest me).
This is the kind of good feeling that comes from following your schedule, doing what is truly important and not letting those FEEL GOOD items distract you from your focus. This is the behavior that determines Success.
