Some things are fun to philosophise about. But some require action, not mulling.

If I challenged you to think about it, chances are you could readily name a handful of people who like to talk about the distant someday when they will... In the interim, they explain, they are doing something else that has nothing to do with their desired end state.  

Let's be frank. A someday goal is unlikely to happen in a person's lifetime. However, an 'I'm busy working on it right now' goal has a fighting chance. 

This week, I invite you to drag your own distant dream, your own 'someday I will...,' kicking and screaming if necessary, out of the nebulous realms of someday, and onto your to-do list. What is the first concrete action step you can take? What can you do this week? 

There is no such thing as: 'One day I will be a...' You are either working diligently on becoming it now, or it isn't happening. Top experts don't delay the important thing and prioritise the trivial. They reverse that order. It takes massive willpower and starts with a simple act of prioritisation. 

If it matters, it's not a dream. It's an action. 

If it's not an action, it will remain a dream. 

How serious are you about becoming the best in your game?
