The Million Pound question ……
by Sunil Bali, 19-08-12
Most people have dreams and make plans. It’s an easy thing to do. But few people execute their plans because they lack the self-discipline to do so.
If you’re procrastinating or unable to get an important task done, ask yourself the million pound question:
If you were given a million pounds to complete the task within 24 hours, could you do it?
If your answer is yes, it means that it’s possible for you to complete the task.
If you subsequently don’t complete the task, then any reason you give for not completing the task is simply an excuse for not being disciplined, and you can’t be serious about what you want to achieve.
As Larry Page the co-founder of Google says, "Inspiration isn’t enough. Success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration."
Ps. When it comes to my kids getting great exam grades at the end of the year, I’ve found the iPhone question very successful.
