Success Loves Speed

Technologic Speed

There is a direct correlation to how fast you implement ideas and how successful those ideas are.

The faster you implement a new idea, the more likely it will be a success.

You have probably noticed the phenomena. You have an idea, you get excited about it, and you take a few days to think it over. At some point, the excitement wears off, the shine is gone from the idea… and nothing gets done.

Recognizing this truth makes it easy to harness it's power. Here's Dr. Ray's prescription:

The next time you get a new idea, immediately take steps that minute to get that idea into motion.

Ask yourself, “What's the fastest way I can get this idea implemented?”

Whether it's an idea for a new book, a new product or workshop, or a goal that you suddenly decide you want to set for yourself, don't let any grass grow under your feet.

Decrease the time it takes to go from idea to implementation. Watch how much more successful you become.

  • I totally agree. Action equals momentum. I used to be of a mindset that all the wrinkles had to be ironed out of a plan before implementing it. But then I realized that no matter how long I ironed, there would always be a few wrinkles. And after all, can’t wrinkles add character?

  • Excellent point. Michael Hyatt says that talking about an idea can give the same satisfaction as doing it. Not good. Less talk, more action.

    Success equals movement especially when you’ve failed. Fear will slow or immobilize motion, and life passes by as we sit and dream.

    Marty Robbins sang it so well in this sad song;

    “A white sport coat and a pink carnation, I’m all dressed up for the dance. A white sport coat and a pink carnation, I’m all alone in romance. Once you told me long ago, to the prom with me you’d go. Now you’ve changed your mind it seems, someone else will hold my dreams.”

    Never let it be said… Our dreams are not dependant on our circumstances if we dare to get up, change, and believe again. Someone is still looking for what we have. Who knows, maybe our dream connection was looking for someone in a black pinstripe with a red rose. At any rate, the music is still playing and I love to dance.

    As Bill Murray said in “What About Bob”… “baby steps Bob, baby steps.”

    I’m looking forward to your April conference in Phoenix, Ray. I know that it’ll be one of the fastest steps in getting my ideas implimented.
