Word-Of-the-Week #812: Effort

February 27, 2020 by  

Effort the use of physical or mental energy to do something. 

Do you feel a need to do a lot to get things accomplished? Is it important for you to be busy a lot of the time?

Once again, Steve Strauss, author of STEVE’S 3-MINUTE COACHING, sent a very thought provoking piece!

Principle: Effective Effort

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

Sitting at the evening meal and in response to the query, “How was your day?” she said, “I got a lot done and I didn’t do a lot.” 

What an important message. It’s about effective effort. 

Some people have a need to do a lot in order to accomplish things. To not be busy would not be good. Well good for them. It’s a completely valid life approach. 

Others have discovered what they’re good at, what brings out their best, what’s in alignment with their life purpose, what evokes their greatest joy and sense of satisfaction. They focus on that. The rest – their weaknesses, the distractions, the unsatisfying – they delegate. It’s the stuff that they are not here to do. Not really. 

By being aware and focusing her energy and choosing her actions she got a lot done while not doing a lot.
