Success dre baldwinWhat defines your success? Meaning — what is it you need to do to have reached “success” for yourself?

People ask me this often; the answer is, I keep those goals private. You could do the same, or broadcast your plans – that’s your decision. What either choice has in common, though, is that you know exactly what has to happen for your success to have been achieved.

Vague ideas lead to vague thinking and vague actions. When you know exactly what you want to get done, making choices about things — what to do today, whether to say yes or no to a proposition, whether doing something even matters — becomes easy because you have an objective to measure it against.

Take some time to think about what you want to achieve and how your actions relate to making that happen. You’ll probably find some things you can eliminate, add or change.
