“Motivation gets you going and habit gets you there.” – Zig Ziglar

Easy to say…

But not always easy to do.

Change. Begin a new initiative. Put a long-pondered plan into action. Actually institute a resolution. Become someone beyond who you’ve been before.

Motivation is key, and countless ideas and splendid plans have no birth without it.

Yet, what’s often missing is to realize that the desired new creations never existed before because there were no structures in place to hold them.

Plain and simple, we’re talking habits.

New habits are what put desired changes into potential existence and then, with practice, eventual reality.

As you continue in hot pursuit of the fresh goals, personal changes, and inspiring themes of your new year, focusing on the construction of new habits will go take you further than hanging out in the motivation.

Start building the structures and, as with any new construction projects you’ve ever been involved with or surrounded by, a healthy dose of compassion will go a long way.

“Forgive our appearance while we are under construction!”

I offered a worldwide webinar yesterday for 169 former fellow initiates of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), the national honorary leadership society.

It was all about constructing career and thought leadership in 2018.

I’m making it available to you for a limited time so that you can get the tools to support your construction as well. See the replay here.

Enjoy the webinar and the full 40 minutes of Q & A afterwards, and make a habit of engaging in the resources to help fulfill your big games in 2018.  https://careerguy.com/ODK

Got cultivated habitualness?

“But I will find new habits, new thoughts, new rules. I will become something else.” – Veronica Roth
