T.N.T. - and I don't mean DYNAMITE :

Last Update: May 20, 2015

I've been in a little bit of a "lull" the last 10 days, taking a break from my WA Affiliate Bootcamp Training and working on my Car Sales Website. And it got me thinking a bit..... I remember a one day sales training workshop that I went to last November put on by a Professional Car Sales Trainer (that I was attending his seminar for the second time in 3 years). I figured I probably wouldn't learn anything new, however I always say to myself that if I even come away with ONE NUGGET of information that will help me in either my professional or personal life then it would have been worth the money to attend. Plus, just getting the opportunity to re-focus and re-energize (away from the dealership) is always a good thing.

And there was one tidbit of information that really stuck with me..... it was the acronym T.N.T. that he talked about..... which stands for TODAY NOT TOMORROW..... and to help us deal with procrastination!!! What a great "rallying cry" that I could say to myself whenever I wasn't really motivated to do the things that move me closer to a sale. I would say T.N.T. to myself and my mind would automatically shift to thinking about the steps I needed to do TODAY. It always gives me a little boost of energy!!!

Here are some other great quotes regarding taking ACTION TODAY:

Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow. – Robert Kiyosaki

What is not started today is never finished tomorrow. - Goethe

The future starts today, not tomorrow - Pope John Paul II

And always remember.....

T-N-T Today, Not Tomorrow. If it's a good idea, don't wait. ACT NOW!! Larry Winget

Have a great week everyone and see you all at the top ! ! !

Cheers,

Joe

I completely agree with that philosophy one hundred percent, and must say that I've never heard of the "Today Not Tommorow" statement before now - but it is quite cool. However, now you've left me wondering slightly what TNT as an explosive stands for.....

Those are some great quotes and I really like T.N.T. because I am a champion procrastinator. I especially procrastinate over starting new webpages because they intimidate me so. So I have to do something to make them less intimidating. But T.N.T. is a good start. Thanks. Great blog.

thanks sheila..... you and me both, i've been a master procrastinator since my grade school days..... lol..... but it's never too late to build good habits, eh :) we can all work towards that..... and funny thing is that it's usually not so bad once we break it down to smaller steps.

Yes, breaking things down into smaller steps is crucial for me. For some reason I always stall at the first step which is research. Which is odd, as I am a former University Masters student --you do a lot of research as a master's student, and librarian. I know a lot about research. I have this block about it. I have to look at that more carefully. I am not sure what that is about. It's like I forget that that is the first step from which all else flows.

i know for me, i have to always think of the old Nike commercial that says "JUST DO IT"..... and not over analyze things (ie. paralysis of analysis)..... also, the acronym for F.E.A.R. also helps..... "False Expectations Appearing Real"...... a lot of the times i'll think things are way harder to accomplish..... when in fact, after "just doing it" usually it's never as bad as it first seems :)

Yeah, The just do it part is probably what I'm missing. How bad can it be, after all. I am so insecure about my writing and I don't know why. I wrote a book that got national awards and that doesn't seem to count for anything in my brain. It's like they made a mistake or something. Which is totally silly. Well, I've just got to do better, that's all there is to that.
