Why Focusing on Form Rocks

Bookmark and Share

Scenario: "Dude, our results suck. We suck. Ahh!" You're either in one of two camps:

  1. "I focus on results."
  2. "I focus on form, and let results take care of themselves."

Most people fit the former. Besides, focusing solely on results comes naturally because:

  1. It's easy.
  2. It's fast.
  3. It take barely any thinking.

That's why most people would rather buy a lottery ticket, than work hard for the Benjamins. Yet, who builds super-successful startups, play in the NBA, win American Idols, or write bestsellers? Those who focus on form, then let the mutha-@^^%^& results take care of their-mutha-@^^%^&-selves.

How Results Blind You

Focusing solely on results distracts you from achieving those results. Peep this basketball analogy: Say Janie's about to play her first season of organized basketball. Before the season, she makes her goals:

  1. I will be a starter.
  2. I will average 15 points a game.
  3. I will win the team's MVP.

The first game ends. She's not a starter, she scored 5 points, and she's the 7th person on her team's depth chart. What goes through her subconscious brain going into the second game?

  1. I will be a starter.
  2. I will average 15 points a game.
  3. I will win the team's MVP.

That "Just-have-the-faith!" mindset becomes a vicious cycle that lasts until the season ends. Then, the inevitable comes: "Oh, what just did happen?!" Before shes know it, season = over; results = unachieved.

What Badass Baller You Do

Instead thinking "I will score 15 points a game," you tell bad-self:

  1. "I have to work on using my legs more to power my shot."
  2. "I have to keep my elbow in and directly under the ball more."
  3. "I need to start squaring up to the basket when I'm shooting."

What automatically happens? You boost your chances of scoring 15-mutha-@^^%^&-points-a-game. Focusing on form = sexy.

Another Analogy: The Lemonade Stand

Two five-year olds:

  1. Johnny wants $5.
  2. Sally wants to sell lemonade.

At the end of the day:

  1. Johnny makes nothing.
  2. Sally makes $5.

Yes, you need goals to rock. But, when you're focusing solely on them, you're tearing apart your chances to achieve those goals. Instead, do this shizzle:

How to Rock Your Business

  1. Set a goal.
  2. List the means to get there.
  3. Focus on those means.

You'll amplify your chances to rock the world.

Form = Sexy.
