Life Lesson: Sniper focus the night before

You want to start the day with knowledge of what is of importance that day.  One of the best times to do this is as at the end of the day the night before.  Pull out your weapon, set it up, and adjust your focus to what needs to be executed.  Keep your list of must do tasks low and only think about things that will result in a major not good consequence if they are left unfinished.  Most of the things we think are so important really aren’t we just use them pass the time during the day.  Set up your focus the night before.

Life Lesson: You are what you think

In order for you to take action your mind must first develop the thought.  This means your body will not execute a command that it was not given to process.  Think of yourself being successful.  Think of yourself receiving the job offer or obtaining the man or woman’s number at the super market.  Picture being perfectly health and driving the car of your dreams.  Anything is possible; your mind believes its reality until you persuade it to believe something else.  Let your mind be your reality.

Life Lesson: Set the tone early each day

In your life you are the enforcer and protector.  You have your best interest at heart more than anyone else on this planet.  Regardless of the sport a good enforcer is known for setting the tone for their team and leading the way.  When you awake for a promising new day be the enforcer of your life and set the tone early.  Think about what you want to execute on that day and take some time to relax.

Life Lesson: Read books, improve your life!

During my college experience a teacher once shared that there are three things you can do to improve your life.  Those things are meet new people, go new places, and read books.  I say the fourth thing would be to think about living an improved life but that lesson is for another day.  It is amazing how cost efficient books are online nowadays.  I have literally walked in Barnes & Nobles and saw a book for $30 only to go online the same day and purchase the same book for $1 plus shipping & handling.  Books can inspire you and lead you to places you wouldn’t be else wise.  Read a book, open your mind, enhance your knowledge, and improve your life!

Life Lesson: Set quick deadlines, execute, on to the next one

Parkinson’s Law refers to the fact the people complete a task based on how much time they have.  Whether someone has one week or one month to complete an assignment they are going to use the full amount of time given to them.  Most people will not turn an assignment they have a month to complete several weeks early.  When it comes to what needs to be completed in your life set quick deadlines.  Execute on the deadlines and set your focus on your next mission critical task.  Ironically, this way of thinking will likely cause you to continue to put far deadline tasks off.  However, that’s okay because at least you are intentionally zoning in on things that matter today.

Life Lesson: 80/20 Rule

Most people think of the 80/20 rule as it relates to relationships.  However, the rule can apply to other areas of your life.  For example, when you look at your monthly house budget I bet the mortgage/rent and car notes as individual line items take up a big chunk of your financial obligations.  Or even when you think about a holiday dinner the turkey or ham takes up majority of the cooking time by itself.  Step back and examine various areas of your life and look at how you can eliminate or reduce investing time in activities or tasks that don’t yield enough results.  Most of the things we feel we must spend time doing can be ignored to the next day without any consequence that matters..

Life Lesson: Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names

Society doesn’t know how to treat forgiveness.  When a horrific murder happens people accused the loved ones of the victims from forgiving too soon.  At the same time, when a person holds onto un-forgiveness they are considered in the wrong.  One thing that is universally true is that telling someone else how to forgive is always easier than being the one doing the forgiving.  Life isn’t black and white, there’s a whole rainbow for a reason.  Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.  Just because you have forgiven a person doesn’t erase what they did from history.  The reality is that what is done is done.  Use the results of the situation as fuel to overcome challenges and always be aware of whom people are..
