Those who work the same mundane job year after year content with their nine to five schedule may seem happy, but none of us dream of working for someone else at a capped salary. We all have goals to achieve and without persistence and an intensity to work hard now those goals can take twice as long to become a reality.
The best way to become successful in your personal and professional life is to develop the 'Do it now' attitude with everything. Even the smallest of projects on your desk should be taken seriously, and in this case impatience is a virtue.
Completion and delivery of all projects should be timely and started the minute they are obtained, because if you don't jump on it someone else will! Understanding that urgency in the business world leads to success and continual work is the basis of the 'Do it now' attitude that you need to have in order to make money and achieve your goals.
There is no room for procrastination in the world of success. Even though you may feel you work best under pressure and close to deadlines, you don't. Pressure can only lead to mistakes, and those mistakes can create massive setbacks in your success. The excitement and urgency to start a task the second you obtain it is part of what should set you apart from the average employee. Leave procrastination at the door, otherwise it is your success that gets left behind.
Efficiency and punctuality should become mainstays of your daily life. While you must develop urgency in completing your assignments it is important that they are completed correctly. The ability to multi-task and complete all assignments well is another crucial component of success in the world. If you don't want to multi-task, outsource your tasks.
It is through implementing your 'Do it Now' attitude, efficiency and punctuality that you can be successful, and soon others will be looking at you and wondering how you got to where you are.
