The Barometer

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:39 am

The only accurate barometer by which to measure yourself is your behavior.

All else is rationalized PR.

When you boil it all down, it all comes down to what you do.

What you say, intend or defend can never contend with the only thing that matters – what you do.

Our focus rarely falls where it would be most useful – on our behavior.

Behavior, productive or not, always produces results. Intentions rarely do.

The results you have in your life can be traced back to one thing – your behavior.

Notice how we can easily ascribe our lot in life to someone else’s actions or inactions. That just underscores that behavior is the culprit or the savior. The problem with focusing on others’ behavior is that we rarely, if ever, look in our own direction.

What actions have you taken to get to where you are now?

What set of steps take you to the same, undesired place every time?

If you want to see how you measure up, start measuring your behavior.

Start to notice what you do. You have a recipe for the results you get. It’s your behavior.

Once you begin to focus on what you do, the components of the path you’ve been walking reveal themselves. It’s at that point you can begin to tinker with the paving stones and build a path to somewhere else.

What you intend isn’t going to happen unless you engage the appropriate behavior.

Here’s a poetic thought for the weekend:

If you’re stuck in a way of life that you rue,
Adjust your behavior and remove the glue

All the best,

John
