One Sentence That Can Change Your Life!
This Phrase Can Change Your Life, IF You Can Do It!
It's a simple phrase, and it comes from Tom Hopkins, a world-class icon in real estate sales. His phrase is as follows:
"Always do what is most effective at the time."
Now, this doesn't sound like much - until you think about it. Then it becomes profound. Think about the choices we make every day, almost every minute of every day.
Load the dishwasher or water the garden. Write a blog post or watch TV. Fix dinner or study the Bible for a few minutes.
Everything we do is the result of a choice. Rarely do we only have one thing needing our attention.
Which choice we make in the moment determines our future, until the next choice.
What Makes this Phrase So Hard To Do?
Because the most effective choice is seldom the comfortable choice, or the easiest choice, available to us.
It takes discipline to ALWAYS do what is most effective for us, even during those times when we don't want to do it.
I believe this method of decision-making can be learned. It takes conscious effort, but if applied, we will be doing more things that are effectively moving us forward.
IF we can learn to do it, we will be better for it.
