If You Want To Be Successful, Only Put VERBS On Your Calendar
My good friend and mentor, former Navy SEAL Stew Smith, always says “If it’s not on the schedule, it doesn’t get done.”
Most people don’t reach their goals because a goal isn’t something you “do” — it’s something you “get!”
And the only way to “get” anything is to take action.
So that means…
Do NOT put outcomes or goals on your calendar (make a million dollars). That won’t work.
If you want to be successful, you put ACTION items on your calendar.
You literally make specific appointments with yourself to take the actions you need to take to produce the outcomes you want.
Placing an action on your calendar at a specific date and time also creates a deadline — a key ingredient to getting anything done.

If you want to be successful, 99% of the items on your calendar should start with a VERB, because that’s how you know it’s an action.
Actions produce results. Nothing else.
