  • Are you focused on the right things?
  • Achieve the goal and that can get in the way of your execution.
  • So when you’re too focused on the end goal, you may lose sight of the daily habits or activities that you need to do actually to help you achieve that result.
  • it’s learning to celebrate the lead measures, not just the lag measures.
  • For example, most people focus on the weight loss lag measure and that is the weight. What does the scale say by the time that they take their weight measurement, there’s little or nothing that they can do to influence that result.
  • but the things that influence that results were the actions that you took weeks and days before those are the lead measures
  • Don’t fall into the trap of only celebrating the result learn to celebrate doing the work that’s required to produce that end result.
