Tom Connellan Quotes
|"You may not win all the time, but you can have a winner’s
heart all the time if you’re always trying to do something better today
than you did it yesterday."
"It is my firm conviction that not everyone can be great, but everyone can be better than they are right now."
"You can’t be 100 percent better than everyone else, but you can be 1 percent better at hundreds of things."
"If you’re motivated, you go out and do whatever it is you’re motivated about. What too many people forget is that the reverse is at least equally true: Motivation comes from having accomplished something."
"The more you get done, the more motivated you are to do things. So you do more things, and you get even more motivated. It’s a self-feeding cycle!"
"The answer is that you start by doing something— however small—and once you accomplish that, your motivation goes up. And then you get more done. And then your motivation goes up. And then ..."
"The best way to increase motivation is to increase action. The more I get done, the more I’ll be motivated to do things. The way to start is by taking action— even if it’s a small action."
"Because of the power of leverage, we know that a relatively small change in the way we do things can have an outsized effect on the results we achieve."
"Taking action overcomes the inertia holding you in place. Momentum keeps you in motion. The right leverage brings outsized results compared to the effort you put in."
"If you want to make it to the elite level of anything—business, math, science, music, literature, chess, pinochle, whatever—it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice."
"Maybe even more importantly when it comes to achieving your career goals, how much time do you spend deliberately practicing the skills of the next job you want to have?"
"What kind of benefit do you think you’d see if you deliberately practiced one thing for an hour every day instead? Do you think that pretty soon you’d see improvement?"
"Think about it: If you’re changing your focus so that you’re practicing even while you’re doing your everyday job, the tasks you’re doing become a way to improve your skills."
"It’s more useful to compare you to you. What matters most is that you become 1 percent better than you."
"You can think about tomorrow, and maybe dream a bit about the future—but doing your best in the present has to be the rule."
