There’s a certain rhythm that comes with getting a job done right.
When you’re working efficiently there’s a certain feeling to your movements.
Everything feels tight and right.
It’s almost as if you’re in a groove and when you realize that you are all you can do is stop and smile.
It’s a great feeling.
You see there’s a difference between labor and work.
While all labor is work, not all work is labor.
Make Follow Up a Habit to Complete the Communication Loop
It’s important to be able to tell the two apart because when you labor at success you often achieve your goals.
However, when you work at success the results can vary enormously.
It’s all matter of mental degree.
You see, achieving your goals is a mind game.
It is literally a process of mind over matter.
When you begin to build certain mental habits, you begin to develop the right mindset that leads you more easily to success.
For example, take a look at the difference between work and labor.
They both mean the same thing, yet the connotation of each word, as we pointed out above, is different.
So, while they are linguistically the same, when it comes to usage they are quite different.
When you begin to look at the effort you put into achieving your goals as a labor of love, rather than work, the effort itself somehow becomes easier, or at least more attainable.
The mental habit of looking at your efforts to succeed in a different way makes all the difference.
The same holds true when it comes to follow up.
The process of follow up itself is relatively straightforward.
All you’re really doing is completing the loop of communication between you and the people who have contacted you.
It isn’t particularly hard or time-consuming.
Yet many people struggle with follow up precisely because they haven’t made following up with communications into a habit.
When you consciously make the choice to respond to e-mails, answer texts or return phone calls, and take action on the decision, you begin to make following up a habit.
It becomes a labor of love that gets you closer to where you want to be, as opposed to a piece of work that has to get done.
When you develop the right mental attitude towards follow up, it becomes a breeze.
