I want to talk to you today about the power of personal motivation, being a daily goal-setter and a daily goal-hitter. People spend their life planning what they’re going to be doing 10 years, 20 years from now, when in truth, they need to be focused on what they’re going to do 20 minutes from now. I’m not one of these people that can write out the laundry list of things I want to do the rest of my life. But I believe one of the things I’ve been good at is trying to get up every day and be better today than I was yesterday.
Inch by inch, it’s a sinch. Get up every day and attack the day. Get after it. Set your priorities for what has to be done today. What do you have to do today before you go to bed? Not worrying about that you’ve got to do three weeks from now, four weeks from now. “Make [today] your masterpiece.” That’s what John Wooden always said. So I believe personal motivation—daily goals of knowing I must get this done today. Go out and attack it and get after it. Go win today. If you win today enough times, the future is going to take care of itself.
See you at the top!
