Here’s the kicker… once diligence pays off and a goal is achieved we must still remain diligent.
Did you finally get the promotion you worked hard for? You need to keep working hard.
Reach your target weight? You must continue to eat well and exercise.
Save money so you can retire? You have to manage that money well in retirement.
Close that deal with a hotly pursued client? You’ll need to soon go after another.
Diligence is incredibly important to achieving goals. In the same way, diligence is also required to maintain what we have worked so hard to achieve. We can’t let up. If we do we might slip back to where we were.
So don’t get comfortable and overconfident when you’ve reached your destination. Enjoy that you’ve arrived and then figure out your plan to stay there.
