So what’s I am on about? Well it’s simply a reminder that, when you know what to do, all you have to do to make it work is to “Just do it!”
Let me explain.
Last Friday I was to speak at a client meeting and, when I arrived at the venue, naturally there were meetings going on in other rooms. One that took my attention was that being held by the Victorian Division of Diabetes Australia. It was their Kellion Victory Medal award ceremony. Curiosity piqued, I asked what it was all about.
The medal presentations honour people who have lived with diabetes for over 50 years and they were recognising 19 people who had attained that remarkable status this year. In fact, one of the recipients had lived with diabetes for 75 years!
How did they do it? Well, they followed the rules that people with diabetes should follow. Religiously!
And there was an “Aha moment” for me!
In our businesses, in our relationships, in our lives we all know the rules. All we have to do is follow them!
But how good are we at doing that? We ignore them, bend them, forget them and don’t trust them, whatever. We plainly and simply just don’t follow the simple rules that will lead us to success.
I wonder how much more inclined we would be to follow rules if our lives depended on doing it as it did for those Kellion medalists.
You can bet your life we would!
