Hard work is worthless without a vision to guide it. First, choose one goal. Not ten goals, not three goals. One goal. Next, give your life a face lift: Redesign your environment to encourage goal-attainment, avoid activities unaligned with your goal, and create a team that supports your vision and can make meaningful contributions to its manifestation. Finally, identify three action steps that will most effectively bring your goal to fruition—then do them. What does all of this have in common? Alignment. Each piece works with and for all of the others. Stop fighting against yourself and start living a life of alignment.
“I can give you a six-word formula for success: Think things through, then follow through.”
- Edward Rickenbacker, Decorated World War I fighter pilot
