In some of my recent study I have come across some new insights to better understand how our paradigm can stop us or hinder us as we move towards a goal.
A paradigm is just a fancy word for the habits that control us and make us who we are.
These are what I call the 3D's of Defeat.
They are inter-related, but also distinct.
Today we will explore Delay and then deal with Distraction and Dissuasion in two other posts.
How Can Delay Defeat Us?
It starts out as a simple thought.
"I can get to that later"
If we allow that kind of thought to govern us and to guide our action we could very easily find ourselves not taking the action that we need to do in order to accomplish the things we say that we want to accomplish.
In order to accomplish any objective we have to take some action.
In sports, in order to score a goal, the players have to take action.
In ice hockey, it is move the puck, pass it around and shoot it into the opponents net.
In basketball or soccer, same thing, this time with a ball, always moving toward the opponents net.
Every sport has some way of keeping score of when a goal has been scored.
There is always action.
If you delay and do nothing, there is no way you can score the goal.
In sports, delay can also mean having a goal scored against you.
So beware of delay.
Get into the game and start taking action.
