#819 Do It Now

Do It Now. Do It Now. Do It Now. (x50 in AM) (+50 in PM)

In our last +1, we spent some time hanging out with John Maxwell and his 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. Recall the focus of that discussion: “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” (← Change anything?)

Today we’re going to talk about another wisdom gem from that book/Note.

In fact, it’s what got me to turn on the computer bright and early this AM to hammer out the last +1 and this one.

Here it is: “In 1974 I attended a seminar at the University of Dayton, where W. Clement Stone spoke on the subject of having a sense of urgency. Stone was a business tycoon who had made his fortune in insurance. His session was titled ‘Do It Now,” and one of the things he told us was this: ‘Before you get out of bed every morning, say ‘do it now’ fifty times. At the end of the day before you go to sleep, the last thing you should do is say ‘do it now’ fifty times.

I’m guessing there were about eight thousand people in the audience that day, but it felt like he was talking to me personally. I went home and, for the next six months I actually followed his advice. The very first thing every morning and the last thing before I went to sleep, I repeated the words ‘do it now.’ It gave me a tremendous sense of urgency.

That’s Today’s +1.

If you feel so inspired, let’s get our fifty reps in now.

Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now.
