Change from Accidental to Intentional Growth

How do you know if you’ve slipped into a rut? Take a look at the differences between accidental growth and intentional growth:

Plans to Start Tomorrow Insists on Starting Today
Waits for Growth to Come Takes Completely Responsibility to Grow
Learns Only from Mistakes Often Learns Before Mistakes
Depends on Good Luck Relies on Hard Work
Quits Early and Often Perseveres Long and Hard
Falls into Bad Habits Fights for Good Habits
Talks Big Follows Through
Plays it Safe Takes Risks
Thinks Like a Victim Thinks Like a Learner
Relies on Talent (only) Relies on Character
Stops Learning after Graduation (or certificate) Never Stop Learning

How do you score your growth pattern? Find one or two area where you need to make the transition from accidental growth to intentional growth and make the decision today to overcome that weakness. Work on it until it becomes a strength. If you start today, you know that you are on your way to overcome the procrastination weakness.
