#722 - Little Things Are Hard
Daily Mind Medicine - Episode #722
In this episode, Taylor shares with us about something he notices with the people at the top and also with himself. And that is, growth comes from daily long term repeated decisions. Directional control comes from you slowing down and making sure that you are headed in the direction that you want to be headed.
What's up brands? What a week. Hope your week is going fire. Happy Thursday. And here's what I've learned. I was just, I'm in the middle of a review process right now.
I just got done teaching for a group of students and clients and customers on how to do reviews. I review my week every single week.
In fact, probably three to four times a a week. I'm reviewing my day. And the, the, the key here is that I want to give my brain as many opportunities to adjust as humanly possible.
You know, most people do a review once a year. That's the only time they review like their whole life and their direction.
And then if you're really good, you may review your, you know, two to three times a year. And so you think about people like me as like, we're reviewing once a day at the latest two to three times a week.
What you grow, what a normal person grows and synthesizes in 52 weeks, I am synthesizing in a day, I am speeding up the feedback loop.
This is why I tend to review myself. You know, directional control comes from slowing down thinking about where am I, where have I moved in the last day, two days, four days?
Am I heading in the right direction? What do I have control over that I'm not utilizing? What do I not have control over that I need to just stop thinking about?
Directional control comes from you slowing down and making sure that you are headed in the direction that you want to be headed.
Anyways, the the key that I found that I struggle with, and I I would imagine you struggle with something similar is I will I will uncover an an area of opportunity.
I will get myself motivated to fix that opportunity, and then I will take a massive dent at it for three days.
Man, I am the most consistent person alive for three days. And then I forget and life gets busy and it, a week or two goes by and then it pops up in a review again.
And I'm like, I've gotta fix this. I've, I've noticed this about the people who are consistently at the top. I've noticed this about myself when I'm consistently at the top of whatever field or category you want to talk about, whether that's business or family finances, you know, physical health, you name it, is that growth comes from daily long term repeated decisions.
It is actually more advantageous for you to make small decisions every day for 50, 60, 70, 90 days than to make huge changes for three days in a row.
Where in my life, this is a question I ask myself, where in my life am I skimping on the tiny choices?
Where in my life am I cutting corners on the little things? And if you know where you're cutting corners on The, the little things you can predict and project out the areas of your life that are going to be directionally unsound, they're going to be uncertain.
They're not going to be what you want them to be in two months, six months, 10 months. How can we tell this?
Because progress comes from little things repeated every single day, compounded over the course of months, quarters, years, and decades. If you want to get your financial life in order, you have to make good small decisions on a daily basis.
It was Jim Rohn that said, success is the small, easy to ignore good choices that are made on a daily basis.
That's it, that's all you gotta do today. Hey, hope you enjoyed this. If you are, leave us a review for the show.
We are starting to grow this again. It has been a cra I don't even have time to talk about the last 12 months, but I'll tell you at some point, it'll come up in a show later.
But we're picking up the daily episodes again, as you can tell. And we'd love for you to share it because we don't like charge for anything on the show or anything like that.
So I love you. Thanks for spending time with me. Thanks for building epic things in your world for the people around you.
You got this. Keep going.
