One-Up Yourself for Bigg Success

one When the phrase “one-up” is used, it’s usually referring to the competition. We had an interesting discussion after working out recently.

___

___

___

marylynnI was on the treadmill and noticed that I was running slower than others around me. I’m competitive but I just can’t sustain the higher speed that other people can.

___

That led to today’s show topic … one-up yourself!

Think one percent better or one percent more. Self-improvement requires patience. A little bit of improvement over time makes a bigg difference.

1% a week leads to a 50% improvement

For example, let’s say you walk two miles in thirty minutes. If you can just do one percent more the next time out, you would walk 2.02 miles in thirty minutes or you might stick with the two miles and plan to do it in 29 minutes and 40 seconds. Either way, it’s a one percent improvement. If you do that every week, over the course of the year, you would have improved over fifty percent!

It’s easy to get discouraged if we don’t see results right away. We’re bigg goal-getters so we always shoot high. However, shooting too high is a recipe for de-motivation. Take baby steps rather than a leap that you can’t sustain!

There are five steps to one-up yourself:

Find the baseline. Measure where you are now so you compete only with yourself, not others. It doesn’t matter what that point is; it’s just important to know it because it’s your starting point.

Set your initial one-up goal. You may want to go faster or longer. Are you in a sprint or a marathon? Are you trying to improve quantity or quality?

Determine the time frame. Do you want to improve one percent every time, each week or some other period? Specify a time frame for your incremental improvement.

How will achieve it? What specific activity will get you that extra 1%? Let’s look at an example, using a savings goal:

Assume you have a base line, how much you’re saving now, of $500 a month. You want to save more money in the same time (each month). In other words, you want to go “faster.” So next month, you plan to save $505 next month.

Okay, so you want to save $5 more next month. How will you do it? You decide that you’ll pack your lunch one more day.

See how easy that was!

As you do it, analyze your results. If you hit your one-up goal, congratulate yourself. But then set your next one-up goal and go get it.

If you didn’t hit your goal, analyze why. Then try, try again. Don’t get down on yourself for missing your goal one time. You’ll one-up yourself next time!

One-up leads to bigg success

There are things in our lives that are sprints; others are marathons. Set your goals accordingly and one-up yourself for bigg success!

Achieving the Impossible Starts with a Dream

By Bigg Success Staff

Leadership Skills

goal

Setting really good, achievable-yet-stretching goals for ourselves isn’t easy. It’s even harder to set goals for your team.

Here’s an idea that would also apply to your individual goals as well. Set goals based on your “most likely” scenario. But don’t stop there. Now set goals for your “best-case” outlook.

Look at your two sets of goals. Now direct all the resources at your disposal for the best-case. You might fall short in the end. However, in all likelihood, you’ll achieve more than you would by just having one set of goals.

When we start to focus our minds on how to achieve any goal, we start finding ways to make it happen. If we set small goals, we achieve small things. If we set bigg goals, we achieve bigg things.

Don’t believe it? Think about Jack Kennedy and the man on the moon, Neil Armstrong. He took a giant leap for all of us when he walked on the moon. Jack Kennedy didn’t have to set a goal of walking on the moon. It was risky – many people thought it was impossible. But he did it anyway – he knew it was important for his country to show the world and, even more importantly, its own people what was possible.

By focusing on a bigger dream, his team got excited about his vision and made it happen. If he had set smaller goals, there wouldn’t have been the same level of enthusiasm. So share a bigg vision with your team, get their buy-in, and go for it!
