I constantly have a high expectation. Maybe it’s because I always expect more from myself.
I continually expect more from this world because that is how we all create change. This is how we get other companies to change their path. Bad reviews of a product are high expectations in waiting.
One would argue that, getting a product that doesn’t work isn’t a high expectation. Rightfully so but maybe it is. Maybe it takes a lot to make that product and that company has a failure rate of 1% of their products. By writing that bad review, maybe the company changes and improves product to the point of a 0.5% failure rate.
High expectations, kept in check, are what makes this world a better place.
Want to go further than anyone else in life?
Become apart of the 1%?
Break some world records?
Good, well the only way their (short of breaking any laws), is discipline.
Discipline, through schedule, routine, and cutting out the noise, is what gets you to where you want to go.
Ever feel like, you’re writing an email or a text to someone, explaining your problem and why you can’t fix it, but after you finished writing you realize, you answered yourself?
This happens more often than not.
I know a lot of people (me included at one point), that say, I give great advice but I’m horrible at giving myself the same advice.
The solution to all this is journaling. My journal is like the Swiss Army Knife to my life. I setup a 3 ring binder and it has my daily journal, weekly review, planning, riffing, goals and timelines. I can tell you what I did yesterday and 40 days ago. I can tell you where I’ll be in 90 days. Or 1 year.
The best part is, all the issues, and thoughts start in my journal. When I can’t figure something out, I just riff it out and eventually after enough writing, I find the answer. Boom! I’ll create a solution and go HAM.
There are great journals with templates all figured out on Amazon, I would recommend checking them out on there or make your own like I did. It’s the keys to the universe for life.
