How much action is required for success?
Legit question, right? You want to know what you’re up against so you can prepare for it. Unless of course you’re trying to decide if it’s worth it…
In Grant’s latest Strategy of the Week, he asks the hard question: Should you be convicted of being too passive?
Just to be clear that’s not “you” in the second person, that’s YOU. These Strategies of the Week are your opportunity (mine too) to look inward. Check yourself before… well you know the rest.
This week’s strategy starts off siting an example of a man who was criminally charged with NOT doing enough. Do you remember the tragic school shooting happened in Parkland, Florida? 17 people were shot and killed. The school officer on duty was charged with failing, declining or refusing to confront the shooter…
How do we relate this to our own personal life?
Are you doing more than enough or are you taking it easy every weekend, never investing in yourself, and doing the bare minimum just to get by?
Do you know how much action is required for success?
[ACTION IDEA #1: Do you have any confusions about where your priorities lie? Inventory your activities today with the amount of time dedicated to each one and you will see your true priorities.]
The good news / bad news is there are no shortcuts. NONE.
Disciplined, consistent, and persistent actions are more of a determining factor in the creation of success than any other combination of things.
Therefor, understanding how to calculate and then take the right amount of action is more important than your concept, idea, invention, or business plan.
Most people fail only because they are operating at the wrong degree of action.

The problem isn’t the competition; it is obscurity.
[ACTION IDEA #3: You will know how much action is required for success when you start getting criticism and hate. Prepare for criticism and hate. Where will it come from and how will you handle it?]
Yet every time I have been labeled, it’s always been by someone operating at less than massive action. I have never had someone who is more successful than I am considering my excessive action to be a bad thing—because successful people know firsthand what it takes to achieve this kind of success.
Taking massive action means making somewhat unreasonable choices and then following these up with even more action.

This level of action will be considered by some to be borderline insane, well beyond the agreed-upon social norm—and will always create new problems.
But remember: If you don’t create new problems, then you’re not taking enough action.
No one is going to come to your house and make your dreams come true.
Success really does take MASSIVE action.
