What Do You Desire?

If everyone has desires, why do so few people actually realise them!

Desire is a primary human motivator that may be defined as a strong feeling of wanting something AND taking appropriate, effective, and sustained action to obtain it.  

If desire is that simple, why do so many people put their own desires on hold becoming ‘tools’ of those who have defined and quantified what it is they truly want?

The answer lies in this question!

For you to have a genuine desire, you must first define what you truly want by when. Then quantify what it takes to acquire it. This means, first making a list of all necessary tasks (doing the right things), and second, putting those tasks in the required order that leads step-by-step towards the desired outcome (doing the things right).

This means Putting 1st Thing’s 1st

Putting 1st Thing’s 1st demands tasks of significance or value to your desire must always be dealt with ahead of other things. In other words, separating what is important from not important, and what is urgent from not urgent. Sounds simple, doesn't it??

Some people tell me they are working so hard for their boss, they don’t have time for their own desires. That’s OK if you want to remain in a Master/Servant relationship. It’s OK to become the best employee your boss has ever had. It’s OK to put all the profit you make into someone else’s bank account if that is what you really, really desire.

I wrote a paper a little while ago stating the average British lifespan consists of 250-months growing up and becoming educated, 500-months working to pay the bills and planning for retirement, and 250-months living in retirement (i.e. 81.2 years). But do you know that, as an employee, you are paid about one-third of what you produce for your boss?

Ask yourself one simple question: do I really desire to work hard for someone else, or desire to work hard for myself?
