    How To Beat Today, Tomorrow

    How did today go?

    If great, most of us go to bed wanting to repeat or build on it.

    If poor, we cannot wait to close our eyes and start over again in the morning. Wehope things will be better. Rarely do we plan to ensure it.

    We all want a better future, a better tomorrow that aligns with the dreams we’ve set out for our life. Most times, we hope they’ll magically come together.

    But life doesn’t work that way. Our “tomorrow’s” improve when we take intentional action today.

    Beating Yesterday

    How do you continually keep giving more effort?

    Beat yesterday. It’s been a phrase we’ve used frequently this year with Compete Every Day. The idea of doing more than we did yesterday is a key component on the road to success. It’s a simple phrase but a challenge we can all take on each morning.

    Some days are harder than others. We don’t know how we can match the prior’s energy level or output, and struggle to even catch our breath. Life knocks us down. That’s inevitable. Some days we do not win. However, the idea of being better than yesterday continues on – if we choose to keep competing.

    The days we are knocked down are easy to rebound from – if we choose to get back up and keep going. The days we struggle to get by can be overcome the following – if we consciously decide that the new day is a new day, leaving the old behind us.

    Intentionally focusing on giving a better effort each and every day is something most people don’t take the time to do or don’t care to. They are “ok” with things as they are, floating through life, day after day. But not you.

    Like you, I desire something more from my life. I realize I only get one shot at today – and I better make it count. So I am intentional in my plan, my words, and my actions – doing everything in my power to give a better effort in my work, my relationships, & my life pursuits. You and I both share that mindset – and that’s why we are competitors.

    But what if you’re struggling to take steps toward daily improvement? Each week I implement specific steps to make sure I am progressing toward my goals. I create a plan to “beat yesterday.”

    Overwhelmed by the Big Picture

    The big picture scares the hell out of me. Does it you?

    It may just be me. It could be just in my own head – that overwhelming feeling of setting a big goal and then being overcome with panic when trying to simply gameplan how to get there. Big goals like starting a business, eating strict & clean for 45 days, or paying off debt. You know you need to reach these goals, but when you sit down to start, the size of the task starts to paralyze you.

    It’s too much. I have no idea where to start. And most times, we tell ourselves we don’t know where to start and so we don’t. We choose doing nothing over doing something – doing anything at all. We allow the “Goliath” to freeze us in our tracks. And that goal? It starts to haunt us, day after day as something we should do, but something we don’t do.

    So how in the world do we move forward when the big picture scares the hell out of us? How the hell do I get my two feet to take one single step today? Here’s what I’ve learned through countless failures – and how those failures taught me to win.
